Harlem Rocker Wins 2008 Prince Of Wales Stakes, Fort Erie Ontario, July 13th 2008

Harlem Rocker really looked ready to go for this race. Walking by to the paddock area he had his ears perked up and was ready to go. During the warm up, Eibar Coa did not use a track rider and Harlem Rocker bounced about playfully, he was ready to race. Coa gave HR a trot by on the way to the gate, and we were eager to see what he could do. As the track announcer had said, the speed was winning today, but that was only for shorter distances, we felt Harlem Rocker could run his race and beat this field.

It took a little for Harlem Rocker to get into the gate, which had me a bit worried. We would read latter that he's a feisty horse and usually takes a little effort to get in. Out of the gate Harlem Rocker settled into 5th with East End Tap beside him in 4th, and a trio of front runners sprinted to the front. Coming around the third turn, it seemed as though Harlem Rocker started to break a little early. We would read latter that Coa did this to get the jump on Not Bourbon, and prevent getting stuck on the inside.

Already starting his run, HR broke 3 wide onto the front straightaway and started towards the finish. I was a little worried as East End Tap appeared to close on him, but HR broke free again and won by 2-3 lengths. We were right on the front stretch rail to get the great photos you can see of the race in the gallery. We were overjoyed with his win, and we made some $$$ in the process.

From what we are told, next up is "a race in Saratoga". I'm hopping this means the Travers.
