Awesome Vision's Thrilling Stretchrun
I watched the the third at Aqueduct from the paddock at Gulfstream Park on Saturday. Our New-York bred Awesome Vision was facing open company for the first time. Three for five going into the race, I had quite a bit of confidence in this colt, but you never know what you’re gonna get when you leave the statebred ranks.
Gates open, Awesome Vision falls to his knees and is at the back of the pack. Jose Ortiz doesn’t panic -- this is a one run type of horse. I wasn’t sure what to think down the backside.

I will tell you that at the top of the stretch we were yelling “get third!”
