Taghleeb tries to prove dirt win was no fluke


OZONE PARK, N.Y. – After toiling in the second-level allowance condition on turf for the better part of the year, Taghleeb finally cleared that hurdle in an off-the-turf race over Keeneland’s main track on Oct. 29. Now, Taghleeb will try to confirm his fondness for dirt in Wednesday’s $75,000, third-level optional-claiming feature going a mile and 70 yards over Aqueduct’s inner track.
