First race post time is 12:55 PM and Hatteras Bound's race is Race 4 which is scheduled to go off at 2:16 PM. As always there will be a Hibiscus table in the clubhouse restaurant. Everyone is invited to join our partners at Parx for a fun afternoon of racing.
Hatteras Bound ran a very strong second at Parx on Tuesday battling throughout and eventually yielding within the 1/4 pole to the eventual winner. Hatteras Bound was hustled to the front, pressed midway on the final turn, but continued gamely to the finish.
We spoke with trainer Steve Klesaris after the race and Steve said, “He ran a big race. He’s starting to come around. He ran very well today.”
We also spoke with Hibiscus Stables CEO Mike Oliveto after the race. Mike said, “He ran a bigger race than it appears on paper. Although he finished second to a very nice horse, he was 3 1/2 lengths ahead of the next horse and the field was completely strung out behind the third place finisher. We’d like to have won but we picked up a nice check today for the partners and we got to enjoy a very exciting race.”
Hatteras Bound earned $4,600 for Tuesday’s second place finish.
Steve will see how Hatteras Bound comes out of the race and we’ll point him accordingly.
