STAN THE MAN Rallies for Runner-Up Spot in Fall Highweight-G3
STAN THE MAN has a stakes win and three Graded placings in his last four starts after a runner-up finish, just 3/4 length back of the win, in the Fall Highweight H.-G3 at Aqueduct. The veteran campaigner by BROKEN VOW raced off the pace in this six-furlong sprint. He began his closing effort near the top of the stretch, put in a charging kick down the lane and made the winner have to work hard to get the victory. STAN THE MAN won Saratoga’s Tale of the Cat S. in August following his runner-up finish in the G2 True North S., less than two lengths back of Firenze Fire. Following the stakes win at Saratoga, he placed in the G2 Kelso to Complexity and Code of Honor, and then put in a good run in the Fall Highweight. Lifetime record: 26-7-8-3, $521,124.
