Sunday was another step as two-year-olds try to thrust themselves to the top ahead of the Breeders Bowl.  In New York, thirteen took to the dirt oval to contest the seven-furlong Hopeless.  TAP TAP TAPPING was the favorite despite dropping his last race, the Hoserhead, to his renewed rival GREYWOLFS HONOR.  Not surprisingly, however, it was sterling scratchbred UNBRIDLED TOWN who set the pace.  Despite this being his first stakes attempt, he cruised to a three-plus length lead through the third point of call.  Stalking horse TURBULENCE T. was the first to take on the leader, and while he did get a nose in front, it was GREYWOLFS HONOR moving fastest of all to win by a clear two lengths.  It was a validation to the Honor Code colt’s form in the Hoserhead, and left him as the number one ranked dirt juvenile after the Grade 1 win.  Congratulations to Greywolf6 stables, and see you in the Breeders Bowl.
