Clay claimed another horse for the group today out of the eighth race. #9 High Spirit was claimed out of the 7 and 1/2 furlong turf race for $7,500. Clay said that he likes the horse’s ability to run on both surfaces and believes that he’ll be able to find a good spot for him.
This time, we actually won a 3-way shake!
High Spirit went favored but wasn’t able to come with his typical late kick as the field let Bravo Prado get away to a pretty easy lead and go gate-to-wire. He ended up finishing mid-pack not being able to mount a serious charge down the stretch.
We’ll update the group on the horse after we have a chance to talk to Clay.
