Calder: Jacks or Better Again


In a little bit of J J's Dream Deja Vu', Jacks or Better Farm and trainer Stanley Gold outdid themselves today when finishing one,two in the J J's Dream stakes with the uncoupled duo of Redbud Road and Awesome Belle.  A year ago, the same team paired up to win the race with Awesome Feather who only went on to sweep the Florida Stallion Stakes, win the Breeders' Cup Juv. Fillies and take home an Eclipse Award.   The top pair did benefit from what appears to be a track that is swifter away from the rail and the fact their chief rival, the odds on Frolic's Revenge, was trapped down closer to the fence during the crucial stages when the top two made their move around the final turn and into the stretch.
