A five time graded stakes winner, Smiling Tiger will return to a venue where he is undefeated (2-for-2) when he starts in the Triple Bend.Read More
I'm surprised Bench Points is choosing the Triple Bend over the Jersey Shore or the Carry Back. This edition of the Triple Bend is difficult to say the least. The connections must think this 3 year old is the real deal?
