Spiral Stakes 2012 Recap – Went The Day Well rolls home

G3 Spiral (3-24-12): 92 BSF (Went The Day Well)

 

Heavy Breathing carved out the early splits for Todd Pletcher, with Went The Day Well positioned perfectly behind the speed along the rail under John Velazquez.

 

Pletcher’s other colt Holiday Promise was sitting midpack at almost 26-1 and expected early runner Handsome Mike broke 12th and last after losing his footing and getting bumped at the start.
