Ride On Curlin eyes elusive first stakes win in Maxxam Gold Cup


Ride On Curlin has represented himself well at the very top level of the game, running second to California Chrome in the Preakness in 2014. But one thing has eluded him: a stakes win of his own. Trainer Billy Gowan would love to see that happen for the 5-year-old handicap horse, who invades Sam Houston Race Park on Saturday night for the $100,000 Maxxam Gold Cup.
