Pool of talent deep for Harlan's Holiday


HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. – On Nov. 23, 2013, Valid splashed to a 23-length allowance win at Gulfstream Park while earning a career-best 106 Beyer Speed Figure. What at the time seemed to be an aberration turned out to be the start of an amazing two-year run during which the consistent Valid rose to the top of the local handicap division and finished fifth this fall in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile.
