Aqueduct: Karakorum wins; Great Emperor vanned off


In a race where Leap Day was inexplicably pounded to 4-5, Karkorum on Black was able to run down 54-1 shot Four Star General in the final strides to win by a nose under Mike Luzzi. Leap Day was fourth.

 Unfortunately, we had our second injured horse of the day as Great Emperor, who finished last, was vanned off with an injury to his right foreleg. Great Emperor, a 6-year-old gelded son of Maria's Mon, was dropping to career low $7,500 claiming tag.
