Evening Attire Gives Us Another Thrill

The old warrior Tuffy Attire got up for place money at Belmont in the one mile and a half Fit To Fight stakes. He was a dime away from being the longest shot on the board and after a few races where he did not run so well he did not look like a likely winner on paper. Once again he broke five lengths last and trailed early. Commencing a rally on the turn Evening Attire passed everyone but the lone speed winner, who got away with a completely easy lead. This horse has many devoted fans and watching him run today was one of the highlights of the day, horses like Attire are one of the best parts of racing. If the people that are calling for the banning of racing would get to know a beloved old campaigner like Evening Attire perhaps they would attain a more informed opinion.
