Ride On Curlin poised to get stakes win


HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Ride On Curlin has accomplished a good deal in his 13-race career. He’s placed in six stakes, including runner-up finishes in the Preakness and Arkansas Derby, and has earned $751,287. But a stakes win has been elusive, and that is something Ride On Curlin will be out to accomplish Saturday when he starts as the probable favorite in the $100,000 Essex Handicap at Oaklawn Park.
