Twilight Meteor Gamely Wins Tropical Turf

Twilight Meteor battled bravely in the closing strides of the $100,000 Tropical Turf Handicap (G3) to hold off fast-closing Canadian champion Rahy’s Attorney on Saturday at Calder Race Course.

The six-year-old Smart Strike horse set a measured pace in the 1 1/18-mile turf race under Luis Saez and charged into the stretch with plenty of stamina in reserve at 15-to-1 odds. Rahy’s Attorney, who was caught wide throughout the race, closed with a powerful rush on the outside but could not reel in Twilight Meteor, who was making his second start for trainer Marty Wolfson.

Owned by John Fort’s Peachtree Stable, Twilight Meteor completed the distance in 1:46.85 on firm turf. Previously trained by Todd Pletcher, Twilight Meteor returned from a layoff of more than 19 months with a third-place finish on October 23 in an allowance race at Calder. Before his comeback race, Twilight Meteor was last seen winning the Canadian Turf Stakes (G3) at Gulfstream Park before being retired to stud at Saratoga Glen in New York.
