Kiss the Kid relishes sloppy track

EmailKiss the Kid ($4), one of only four horses who remained in the field when the race was shifted from turf to a sloppy and sealed main track, cruised to a 5 3/4-length victory in the $58,200 Cozzene Stakes at the Meadowlands.

Ridden by Stewart Elliott for trainer Amy Tarant, Kiss the Kid sped a mile and 70 yards in 1:38.20, just .30 of a second off the track record of 1:37.90. He is now 2 for 2 on off tracks and 5 for 15 lifetime.
