Kantharos’ Image ran a strong second in his race at Gulfstream Park on Friday settling off a contested pace then mounting a strong bid to get up for second. Breaking from post 3 Kantharos’ Image saved ground for three furlongs, shifted out at the top of the stretch with aim outside the leaders, gained to the finish, but did not have quite enough.
We spoke with trainer Steve Klesaris after the race and Steve said, “He ran the prefect race. The jockey let the other two horses slug it out and then picked up the pieces. The winner is a nice horse. I’m not sure we could have gotten to him today.”
We also spoke with Hibiscus Stables CEO Mike Oliveto after the race. Mike said, “This horse is a gamer. He always gives you a legitimate effort. He’s been a lot of fun to have in the barn and a very exciting horse for the partners.”
Kantharos’ Image earned $9,800 for Friday’s second place finish.
