With Hanava scr’d due to a quarter crack problem, today’s $200,000 GII Swale Stakes, for 3yo’s, at 7f’s lose its star runner that then opened the door for the Nick Zito trained Spot, to come running late at 2/5 favorite in No Nay Never, in the stretch to go on to a 2 1/2 lengths win over a fast G/P main in a mild upset!
Big favorite No Nay Never, had a good lead in the stretch but got leg-weary in the finish 16th and surrendered the lead to the oncoming Spot. Brothersofthetime, got up for 3rd passing some very tired brothers for the board hit but back another 1 1/4 length with Prudhoe Bay, filling out the super back 5 lengths more!
