The Hunted Blows Them Away

Paired back with jocked Tiago Pereira, The Hunted broke well, eased back into a comfortable stalking trip, made a move on the turn and mowed them down in the stretch to a clear 1 1/2 length victory. With the turf rails set at 30 feet, The Hunted covered the one mile trip in a blistering 1:33.80.
