St. Joe Bay stays in his comfort zone for Midnight Lute


In his first 18 starts, St. Joe Bay had sprinted and gone long, raced on dirt, synthetic, and turf, and never had topped a Beyer Speed Figure of 100. Yet last time out, he turned in unquestionably the best performance of his career, rolling to a 6 1/2-length victory at Del Mar and producing a 104 Beyer.
