Massone Rates Longshot Look in Arcadia

Massone at Louisiana Downs prior to finishing 3rd in the Grade 2 Super Derby.

Tim Yakteen gives Massone more than a longshot’s chance to outrun his odds against even-money morning line favorite Mr. Commons in Saturday’s Arcadia Stakes at one mile on turf.

 

“He’s training absolutely lights out and Corey’s going to fit him like a glove,” the trainer said, speaking of jockey Corey Nakatani, who rides Massone for the first time.

 

In 29 career starts, Massone has eight seconds and eight thirds, but only two victories. “He’s ready to run a big race,” Yakteen added. Owned by the Frankfurt Stable of Lewis Figone, Massone, a 6-year-old Menifee horse, has earned $513,342.

 

The field for the Arcadia, which goes as the third of 10 races: Dewey’s Special, Jose Valdivia Jr., 8-1; Pathfork, Joel Rosario, 5-2; M One Rifle, Joe Talamo, 10-1; Calimonco, Victor Espinoza, 6-1; El Gato Malo, Martin Garcia, 12-1; Willyconker, Rafael Bejarano, 8-1; Massone, Corey Nakatani, 20-1; and Mr. Commons, Mike Smith, 1-1.
