To Honor And Serve Dusts PA Derby Foes

11 27 2010: To Honor and Serve with John Velazquezup win the 97th running of the Grade II Remsen for 2-year olds, at 1 1/8 miles, Aqueduct Racetrack, Jamaica, NY. Trainer William Mott. Owners Live Oak Plantation.
To Honor And Serve cruised to a strong prominent throughout tally over Belmont Stakes hero Ruler On Ice in Saturday's Grade 2 Pennsylvania Derby at Parx.

To Honor And Serve tracked longshot pacesetter Rush Now through solid splits of :23.29, :46.62, and 1:10.22. The Bill Mott trainee took over, opened up a clear lead, and coasted home by 2/1-4 lengths under Jose Lezcano. He stopped the clock in 1:47.34 and paid $5.20 as the betting favorite.  

Ruler On Ice rallied strongly for the place after surprisingly falling well off the pace from the inside under new pilot Garrett Gomez. He spotted the winner ten pounds and finished fast once in the clear on the outside.

Rattlesnake Bridge was in the hunt throughout and easily held the show. Arthur's Tale rounded out the superfecta and was followed across the line by J W Bluw, Norman Asbjornson, Rush Now, a slow starting Pender Harbour, and 93-1 outsider Isn't He Perfect.

To Honor And Serve, a 3-year-old son of Bernardini, has now won two straight and could target the Breeders' Cup Classic at Churchill Downs on November 5.

Correction: Give him, not me, consideration.
Brian Zipse: I don't know if you recall, but four weeks ago, you named Stay Thirsty the Horse Of The Week, and I had made a suggestion that To Honor And Serve was deserving IMO. He proved me right today. Hope you give me consideration.
