Aqueduct: Rick Violette runs 1-2

Email

Trainer James Bond's attempt to sweep the early double went awry immediately after Shalaka had her head turned to the left when the gates opened and she broke several lengths behind the field under Mike Luzzi.

 Shalaka, the 8-5 favorite, did rally to finish a well-beaten third behind Ride With the Herd, who won handily over Deflate the Bubble, who was running well late and galloped past the winner shortly after the wire. Coincidentally, the first two finishers were trained by Rick Violette. But only the winner was owned by Rick Violette. The runner-up was owned by Violette's major clients Seth Klarman and William Lawrence
