Oak Tree: Metz claims a Yacht


Yacht Spotter, who fought for the early lead before fading to finish last in the first race, was claimed for $12,500 by trainer Jeff Metz.

Yacht Spotter battled with Fiery Trippi and faded from contention in the stretch, finishing well behind Joe Carl, who rallied from the back of the field to win the race over 1 1-16 miles. Joe Carl ($6) was ridden by Joel Rosario for Dan Hendricks.

Yacht Spotter has 8 of 39 starts but is winless in eight starts this year.
