Race Comments: MONBA, never far back and steadied slightly entering the backstretch between rivals, tracked front-running COWBOY CAL six wide, went after that one a quarter-mile out, then was fully extended to wear him down at the end. COWBOY CAL bumped at the start by STEVIL when that one leaned in, continued in bumping KENTUCKY BEAR, raced well off the inside while gaining a clear lead on the first turn, coasted along five or six wide on the backstretch, edged in entering the far turn, was engaged by MONBA coming to the quarter-mile marker, floated out entering the upper stretch to be six or seven wide into the upper stretch, then couldn't contain the winner in a game try. KENTUCKY BEAR, bumped soon after the break by COWBOY CAL when that one was forced in, raced within easy striking distance between foes five wide, came out nine wide for the drive, loomed menacingly for the last eighth but couldn't offer the needed late response. STEVIL drifted in at the break bumping COWBOY CAL, followed the leaders four or five wide, came out ten or twelve wide entering the upper stretch, altered course to be five wide in the final furlong, then failed to gain further. VISIONAIRE, outrun five wide for seven furlongs, came out twelve wide entering the stretch to secure room, then was slowly gaining in the late stages. MINER'S CLAIM, outrun early, raced three wide, advanced from that position on the track around the far turn, made a bold run leaving the quarter-mile ground but couldn't sustain the needed momentum. HALO NAJIB, outrun to the stretch and near the inside, improved position while unable to menace. MEDJOOL, rank behind horses when steadied repeatedly nearing the first turn, wasn't a factor. COOL COAL MAN, forwardly placed while tracking the leaders three or four wide, raced in a striking position to the head of the stretch and flattened out. PYRO broke a step slow, settled four wide while unhurried to the far turn, came out between foes five or six wide entering the upper stretch and never fired. BIG TRUCK raced in contention five wide from early on, was asked nearing the five-sixteenths pole and tired. STONE BIRD, up close five wide early, faltered soon after going six furlongs.
