Colizeo is Unprecedented

The track was fast, Platinum Hunter (Jade Hunter - Maha Al Iman by Pulpit) and the AEs, Buzzin Ready (More Than Ready - Lib by Unbridled) and Mine N Gems (Mineshaft - Flager (ARG) by Southern Halo) were scratched. Colizeo (Distorted Humor - Colony Band by Dixieland Band) was favored, going off at 4-5. Unprecedented (Saint Liam - Desert View (GB) by Sadler's Wells) was 5-1. I liked the look of Smart Sky (Sky Mesa - Flashy n Smart by Smarten). Unprecedented made a good impression as well. Little Top (Giant's Causeway - Thorough Fair by Quiet American) was showing some spunk as they headed to the track. Switching to Glide (Honor Glide - Striking T by Smart Strike) went to the early lead, with Colizeo and Unprecedented pressing. Mr. Rico (Sarava - Champagneforaqueen by Overnight Express) wasn't far back in 4th, but there was a gap to the rest. Colizeo went to the lead, but Unprecedented went with him, as Switching to Glide faded. Colizeo pulled away in the stretch to get the win by 5 1/2 lengths. Vanishing Buck (Point Given - Our Honoree by Danzig) and Wildcat Gamble (Best of the Rest - Mensa Mom by Forest Wildcat) came on late for 2nd and 3rd, and Dreaming Blue (Street Cry (IRE) - Allison's Hope by Langfuhr) just took 4th over a weakening Unprecedented. Watch the Replay.
