Early furlongs key for No Distortion in Long Branch Stakes


The last two times No Distortion has made the early lead, he won easily, and he earned a career-best 95 Beyer Speed Figure for his 11 1/2-length romp last time out at Delaware Park. But breaking from the outside post over a track where he has finished a distant fourth in his two previous tries, No Distortion is no cinch to be in front early in Saturday’s $100,000 Long Branch Stakes at Monmouth Park.
