ONE to go.

Kid Molave, responding splendidly under John Paul GUce, mowed down the field enterning the final straight to claim the second leg of the Triple Crown yesterday and move within another victory of local horseracing immortality at Santa Ana Park in Naic, Cavite.

Guce allowed his mount to settle near the tail of the field for most of the 1,800-meter race before coming up with his finishing kick to win by a length over Kairserslautern with a time of 1 minute and 54.4 seconds (quarter times of 13, 23-1/2, 24-1/2, 25 and 28).

Ibinuhos ni King Bull ang lakas nito sa rekta para kilalanin bilang kampeon sa second leg ng 2014 Philracom Hopeful Stakes race kahapon sa Santa Ana Park sa Naic, Cavite.

Si Jonathan Hernandez ang sumakay sa kabayong pag-aari ni Mandaluyong City Mayor Benhur Abalos at Nakontento muna ang tambalan sa ikaapat na puwesto pagpasok sa kalagitnaan ng 1,800 metro distansya.

Ang ginawang pahinga ay nakabuti sa kabayo dahil sa pagpasok ng far turn ay kinargahan na ni Hernandez ang tatlong taong colt na may lahing Bwana Bull at Nothing Impossible.

KUMPARA sa unang leg ay mas napalaban si  Kid Molave sa mga katunggali kahapon.

Pero hindi naman nadiskaril ang hanap na ikalawang sunod na panalo dahil napagtiyagaan ni Jockey Alvin Guce na panatilihin ang init ng kabayo tungo sa tagumpay sa second leg ng 2014 Triple Crown Championship na ginawa sa Santa Ana Park sa Naic, Cavite.

Sa 1,800 metro pinaglabanan ang karera at bumangon si Kid Molave mula sa ikalimang puwesto sa alisan para ilapit ang sarili sa isang panalo at maging ika-10 kabayo na nakawalis sa tatlong yugtong karera na handog ng Philippine Racing Commission (Philracom).
