Kobe's Back ready to put gate woes behind him

Email

ARCADIA, Calif. – Starting gate issues have kept Kobe’s Back from reaching his potential this year. He broke slowly and finished seventh in the Grade 2 Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn Park on March 15. In the Grade 3 Bay Shore Stakes at Aqueduct on April 5, Kobe’s Back hit the side of the gate, was last on the backstretch, and rallied to finish third.
