Candy Ride’s Geaux Rocket Ride is the best confirmed

Oak studs Ride the rocket rocket Geaux (candy ride {Arg}) marked the bet winner off its list with a speeding win in the Affirmed S. at The Great Race Place on Sunday afternoon.

After a glittering 5 3/4 long debut win on January 29 at Santa Anita, the flying pony finished second in GII San Felipe S. to Actual Walk (Realistic jokes) before he was sidelined with a low-grade fever before the GI Santa Anita Derby.

Lost with a score of 1-2 here, Geaux Rocket Ride was determined to live up to its price when it came to tracking Del Mar Jerry (own) And Hard to imagine (Spin hard), who are engaged in a speed duel into the corner of the clubhouse and get behind. At his suggestion for the long leg, cadet Richard Mandella got ahead of the pair, went to the right of both of them, and rolled down the lane to win by 1 3/4 length Mr. Fisk (Superior).

Coach Richard Mandella said: “He’s just a classy little guy. “We will probably consider [GI] Haskell S. We’re going to enjoy this today, but that’s what we’re aiming for.”

The first to do races for his dam, who considers MSP Mighty Mo a half-brother, Geaux Rocket Ride’s newest brother is a dirty child of Rowayton who was born on March 6.
