Curlin Wins the Stephen Foster

Curlin has just won the Stephen Foster in convincing fashion, winning in 1:49 with Einstein 2nd, long shot Barcola 3rd and Grasshopper 4th. I was lucky enough to catch the race live on CapitalOTB TV channel on my Time Warner Cable system. Curlin was boxed in early in slow fractions with Jockey Robby Albarado patiently waiting with the long shot Barcola leading the way. Around the final Turn Curlin found an opening, made his move and sped pass the field. He passed a tiring Barcola and won comfortably.
