Kantharos’ Image ran a huge third at Gulfstream Park on Thursday pressing the pace and missing the grand prize by only a 1/2 length. Breaking from post 5 Kantharos’ Image pressed the pace two wide early, battled between Sleeping Giant and Call Wil from mid-turn to the furlong grounds, then kept on with good courage through the last 50 yards between the top two finishers.
We spoke with trainer Steve Klesaris after the race and Steve said, “He got two rough trips in a row and didn’t give us the result we were looking for. Today he got a flawless ride and we saw what this horse is capable of.”
We also spoke with Hibiscus Stables CEO Mike Oliveto after the race. Mike said, “Steve has been high on this horse since we claimed him. We haven’t had the best racing luck but today the tables turned in our favor a bit. It was a great race and really fun to watch. I’m looking forward to his next one.”
Kantharos’ Image earned $2,800 for Thursday’s third place finish.
