Excellent race ran by Kodiak Kowboy today in the Cigar Mile Handicap. With this win he's likely put himself squarely in the conversation for an eclipse award for champion sprinter along with Zensational.
This race lost a lot of its luster when Quality Road bailed. At this distance he figured to tower over his rivals.
I think Quality Road is likely to get a very stiff challenge from Pyro, Munnings, and Vineyard Haven in this race, but if he run's to form and the track stays dry I really think his class will prevail in the race as the one mile distance may be ideal for him.
