Suffice to say, he knows his way around the Great Meadow racecourse.
Now the bad news is Aero, our CC Nation “Pick Of The Day,” faces Bubble Economy who is looking for his third Virginia Gold Cup victory. The field also includes Incomplete who won the important Gold Cup prep race, the My Lady’s Manor, where he defeated a quality field including Bubble Economy (2nd).
That said, it’s a long race at some four miles over something like 300 immovable post and rail fences....OK, we’re exaggerating, it’s only 23 fences, but after the first three miles if feels like 300...so anything can happen.
Go, AERO, GO!
