Aqueduct: Somehow, Fastus Cactus wins

Email

Despite getting out down the backside, around the turn and into the stretch, even-money favorite Fastuc Cactus somehow won the third race. Kudos to Ramon Dominguez for being able to manage to keep this horse going despite getting out so severely. Fastus Cactus did a similar thing last time out when ridden by Edgar Prado, but not to this extent. He won that day under Prado as well.

 How do you wager on any of the horses that finished behind Fastus Cactus --- Jala Fever, Cires, Sly and The Roundhouse --- ever again?

My Golden Opinion was scratched at the gate -- the first late scratch of the inner track meet. Since this was a claiming race, all trifecta wagers were refunded.
