The Sunland Derby – Post Race

Track playing very fast

Hence ran a terrific race as he was able to settle far back early and slowly made up ground to the 3/4′s point getting a very fast early pace to help his cause. Hence found his best stride and made a strong move to rally on the far turn and ranged outside the early leader, gained the lead at the 3/16ths point and edged away to the finish. This was a very nice effort for Hence and it looks as though he will move forward off this race as he is also well bred to get the classic distances and seemingly is improving at the right time.

Conquest Mo Money turned in a very nice effort as he settled well off the hot early pace and moved sharply to contention by the 3/4′s mark. Was able to wrestle a short lead approaching the 3/16ths pole but couldn’t fend off the winner however managed to finish a game 2nd. I feel Conquest could move forward off this race since he has now shown improvement in every passing race and is also well bred for the classic distances.

Hedge Fund showed good early speed as he turned in quick splits early and held the lead into the stretch before weakening in the late stages. He has shown improvement but I don’t think he will get 1 1/4 miles right now.
