SMELLTHECOLORNINE MAKES SOPHOMORE DEBUT A WINNING ONE
Given a perfect steer by the up-and-coming Marcus Miller, this son of Cole Muffler-Ten Speed sat in the pocket the entire way as favored Rich N Flashy (Tyler Buter) carved out splits of 28.3, 58.0 and 1:26.3.
After securing racing room in the passing lane as the field moved through the stretch, the Erv Miller-trained gelding then blew right by the pace setter to make his 2009 debut a winning one. Rich N Flashy held on gamely for second while Fox Valley Ruler (Dean Magee) came on late to finish third.
After a nice freshman season in which he posted a record of 5-6-1 in 19 starts, Friday’s victory moved Smellthecolornine’s career earnings over the $73,000 mark.
