Hatteras Bound ran a respectable but disappointing third at Parx on Saturday pressing the pace throughout yet being unable to catch the gate-to-wire winner. Hatteras Bound saved ground stalking the pace and held on gamely. Hatteras Bound was claimed out of the race.
We spoke with trainer Steve Klesaris after the race and Steve said, “We had the perfect trip but he didn’t want to go through on the rail. He needs to be outside. He just won’t go between horses.”
We also spoke with Hibiscus Stables CEO Mike Oliveto after the race. Mike said, “I’m deeply disappointed that a 26-1 horse who is the long shot of the field managed to go gate to wire and our horse, despite getting the dream stalking and ground saving trip, couldn’t run him down. He was claimed away from us in this race so we’re going to take the purse and the claim money and move on and get another one.”
Hatteras Bound earned $2,530 for Saturday’s third place finish.
Hatteras Bound is entered to run in Saturday’s 4th race at Parx which is a $12,500 Claiming race going 1 mile 70 yards for 3-year-olds and up which have never won 3 races. He drew post position 4 and jockey Joshua Navarro is named to ride.
Hatteras Bound is currently the 8-5 Daily Racing Form morning line favorite in the race. He’s the DRF Consensus selection to win the race. Two DRF handicappers select him to win the race.
The purse for this race is $23,000.
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.
