Despite the Odds He Wins

  • Comments

Despite the Odds (Speightstown) went right to the lead. Dr Redwood and Carol's Hero kept him company early, with Carol's Hero looking like a threat. But, Despite the Odds scampered away. Triple Honor tried to make a run at him, but it was really no contest. Despite the Odds continue to increase his lead with little urging. Jeremy Rose looked back for the competition several times, but there was none in sight. The final margin was better than 10, and the time a nice 1:09.69. Michael Trombetta appears to have another good one. Jeremy Rose was also having a good day, as Despite the Odds was his fourth winner on the day.
