Kharafa bursts through narrow gap to win Elkhorn


Kharafa had more than his share of traffic trouble during Saturday’s $75,000 Elkhorn Stakes at Monmouth Park. Forced to steady approaching the final turn and then with no room to run in midstretch, Kharafa still managed to get the job done under Paco Lopez to narrowly prevail as the 6-5 favorite.
