Coffee Boy Surges in Carry Back

Paul Pompa Jr.’s D’ Funnybone was the 1-to-9 favorite in the $194,000 Carry Back Stakes (G2) against only three challengers, but just when victory seemed assured for the five-time Grade 2 winner, Gary Barber’s Coffee Boy swept past D’ Funnybone in the stretch to score a one-length upset under jockey Jermaine Bridgmohan.

Interesting observations. Not sure it would have made the difference in either case, but I agree with your take.
Second big stakes race in a row that Edgar Prado has got caught "napping at the wheel" so to speak. He had D' Funnybone under a hand ride coming into the stretch at Calder. By the time Prado realized Coffey Boy was sneaking through on the rail, it was far too late for the stick to do Prado any good for D'Funnybone. Similar situation in the United Nations Handicap. When Prado sat in a stalking position on Take The Points letting Get Serious, Acclamation, and Straight Story fight it out up front on the pace. Once Prado took Take The Points to the lead, passing Straight Story, he thought he was home free again. He never saw Chinchon coming either. Chinchon came with that from last to first dash like he had been shot out of a cannon. By the time Prado realized Chichon was coming, it was to late for Take The Points as well. JMO.
