Imperative, found that lightning does strike twice in the same place as the 2014 Charles Town Classic winner found the finish line first (by a neck) again in this year’s sloppy track edition of the $1.25 Million, GII Charles Town Classic Stakesat Charles Town Races today.
N.Y. invader Matt King Coal, was a very game 2nd but did battled hard all the way down the home stretch, 3rd went an equally game War Story, with Bodhisattva, coming from the back of the pack to fill out today’s superfecta!
Race favorite Stanford, faded to an off the board and tired looking fifth finish after slugging it out in the slop with 80/1 shot Cautious Giant, on the front end in the early stages!
Heavy favorite Shared Belief was eased somewhere on the backstretch of today’s GII Charles Town Classic giving the front running Moreno zero challenge in the stretch and a easy win in this $1.5 Million 3-turn Classic contest!
Last year’s champ Imperative was moving up late for 2nd, with 3rd going to one of the local horses in Page Mckenney!
