STAN THE MAN a Game Win in Aqueduct’s Queens County S.
Making his first start in 197 days, Graded-placed STAN THE MAN dug in to hold off a late closer and take the 1 1/8-mile Queens County S. by a neck. Last seen in the True North S.-G2 on June 7, the son of BROKEN VOW stayed within striking range down the backstretch. He began his rally on the far turn to engage the leader, eventually put that foe away inside the eighth pole and then put in a gallant effort to hold off a fast-closing horse to earn his first stakes win and go over the $400,000 mark in earnings. In the race just prior to the True North, STAN THE MAN nearly went-wire to wire in the $200,000 Westchester S.-G3, only to be caught in the final strides and finish a neck back as the runner-up. Lifetime record: 20-6-6-2, $400,499. O-Long Lake Stable LLC. B-Emma Quinn, Dermot Quinn, Scott Pierce & Debbie Pierce. T-John Terranova.
