Genuine Risk Wins!

GENUINE RISK settled nicely as the field came away in good order and was reserved behind PLUGGED NICKLE and inside WITHHOLDING around the first turn and early backstretch. She was eased back slightly and moved to the outside smoothly approaching the half-mile pole, gradually raced to the leaders outside four rivals, and took command entering the stretch; was hit once with the whip right-handed, increased her advantage under six well spaced strokes as Vasquez switched to the left, and continued resolutely to the end. RUMBO dropped back last soon after the start and was kept outside rivals, gradually improving position, swerved under right-handed urging after racing wide into the stretch, and gained steadily under heavy left-handed urging in the final furlong. JAKLIN KLUGMAN saved ground behind the first flight, worked between rivals around the final turn, and moved boldly in pursuit of the winner settling into the homestretch, but could not sustain his bid. SUPER MOMENT stayed close to the rail and closed well from the head of the stretch to out finish the others. ROCKHILL NATIVE had no difficulty taking a clear lead from between rivals entering the backstretch, but swerved out and was lightly checked for a stride approaching the six-furlong pole, stayed with the pace to the top of the homestretch, and then weakened. BOLD 'N RULLING raced with the pace along the rail for six furlongs, gave way approaching the stretch and drifted out, then held on fairly well in the straightaway, but pulled up lame. PLUGGED NICKLE rated near the lead outside ROCKHILL NATIVE and BOLD 'N RULLING, bore out slightly on the final turn, then raced true while tiring in the homestretch run. DEGENERATE JON was a factor for six furlongs and tired. WITHHOLDING was very wide outside the first flight and tired. TONKA WAKHAN was outrun. EXECUTION'S REASON was used up early. GOLD STAGE also tired early. HAZARD DUKE was not a factor.

The Bicentennial to the Dawn of Simulcasting

As president, Lynn Stone headed the efforts that ended two separate takeover attempts by Brownell Combs II of Spendthrift Farm and Irwin L. Jacobs, respectively in 1984.
