Curley Jack and Dennington took to the Freedom Trail after a cup of Instant Coffee:)
INSTANT COFFEE was unhurried early while racing four-wide,came five-wide into the stretch and was up in the final sixteenthto win going away. CURLY JACK saved ground stalking the pace, got shuffled back slightly waiting for room nearing the quarter pole, angled in at the eighth pole and finished strongly when clear. HAYES STRIKE bobbled at the start, then dropped back,rallied six-wide into the stretch and finished fast.
Here's to "The Parents as Champions! CONGRATULATIONS!
