How can you not be dumbfounded every time you review the data from Fort Larned’s shocking stumble and run-off during the Gulfstream Park Handicap? If ever you wanted to prove the fact that thoroughbred are born to run, and that some will run faster than others when given the opportunity, take a look back at the replay of the race. After dislodging Brian Hernandez, the Breeders’ Cup Classic winner gathered himself and took flight, shooting through the field and setting a wicked but futile pace. Surely, we recognize that Fort Larned ran through sensational fractions without a jockey to slow the journey. Still, the son of E Dubai showed wild professionalism in that race, sticking to the rail and running the “equivalent” of several course records, albeit without a 124-pound impost on his back.
