Ever see the Seinfeld scene where Kramer watches hopelessly as his “sure thing” horse struggles at the back of the field, only to come alive at the last possible moment and rallies for a narrow victory?
Freaky Styley provided a similar rollercoaster of emotions Saturday at Aqueduct – a normally speedy colt who looked sluggish trailing the field and with few positive signs until he kicked in inside the eighth pole and mowed them all down, catching the last horse at the wire to win by a nose.
We’ll let Kramer’s expressions illustrate what it was like watching Freaky Styley!
Eric Cancel piloted Freaky Styley, who broke his maiden in his previous outing on December 20, following second-place finishes in his first three starts. Jorge Abreu trains the homebred 4yo for West Point and Chris Larsen.
