LIFE IN SHAMBLES Places in Belmont’s Diablo S.

LIFE IN SHAMBLES pushed his career earnings over the $400,000 mark with an eventful placing in Belmont’s six-furlong Diablo S. The son of BROKEN VOW bobbled at the break but recovered to be third, only 2 1/2 lengths back after the first half mile. He rallied on the turn to be just 1/2 length off the lead by the eighth pole, was bumped by the eventual winner but continued to run on to the wire. Last year, LIFE IN SHAMBLES put together a three-race win streak that culminated with a 4 3/4-length win in a 5 1/2-furlong off-the-turf allowance sprint at Saratoga. He has placed in Belmont’s Easy Goer S. and Pimlico’s Sir Barton S. (beaten a head), and also finished on the board in this year’s Grade 3 Toboggan S. (beaten only a length). Lifetime record: 28-7-4-2, $401,984. O-Paradise Farms Corp. B-Christophe Clement and Don M. Robinson. T-Steve Asmussen.
