Unbridled Wins!

UNBRIDLED, caught in tight quarters following the start, moved towards the inside while beginning to rally approaching the end of the backstretch, angled out to continue his run at the far turn, loomed boldly from the outside entering the stretch and drew away under brisk urging. SUMMER SQUALL, unhurried early, commenced to rally approaching the far turn, reached the front from between horses nearing the stretch but was no match for the winner while besting the others. PLEASANT TAP, in close after the break, advanced steadily to reach a striking position approaching the stretch but lacked the needed late response. VIDEO RANGER, outrun early, raced wide while moving approaching the stretch but failed to sustain his bid. SILVER ENDING, wide into the backstretch, moved within easy striking distance nearing the stretch but tired during the drive. KILLER DILLER raced erratically while along the inside after entering the backstretch, made up some ground around the far turn but lacked a further response. LAND RUSH, unhurried into the backstretch, was racing between horses when checked while leaning into SUMMER SQUALL near the far turn, rallied leaving the far turn and gave way. MISTER FRISKY away in good order, went up after REAL CASH while racing between horses on the first turn, headed that rival just after going seven furlongs but had nothing left for the drive. THIRTY SIX RED raced forwardly to the far turn and tired badly. POWER LUNCH, off slowly, was never close. REAL CASH, hustled along after the start, saved ground while showing speed until near the stretch and stopped badly. DR. BOBBY A. tired badly. PENDLETON RIDGE raced wide. BURNT HILLS was finished after going a half. FIGHTING FANTASY came out into UNBRIDLED and PLEASANT TAP following the start, bore out while vying for the lead into the first turn, continued wide thereafter and dropped far back. Scratched - Country Day.
