Alwanees ran a very good second on Sunday at Parx chasing the gate to wire favorite and finishing well ahead of the rest of the field. Alwanees advanced outside after half a mile, reached even terms in mid-stretch, but just missed. Alwanees was claimed out of the race.
We spoke with trainer Steve Klesaris after the race. Steve said, “When you get taken in a race you always want to win. He ran a very nice race. The horse that beat us is legitimate.”
We also spoke with Hibiscus Stables CEO Mike Oliveto after the race. Mike said, “It would have been nice to have won that one. It’s all part of the game. This horse was productive for us once we got him running. I think he’ll be a nice horse for someone going forward.”
