Guest Suite Takes the Long Way in Lecomte

Guest Suite overcame a long trip in the Lecomte Stakes, going four wide in the far turn to overtake the leaders and registering a 1 1/4-length win over a fast-closing Untrapped.

Guest Suite also went wide in the first turn before settling into sixth place on the backstretch while front runners Running Mate and Phat Man battled it out for the lead.

Jockey Robby Albarado decided to take a chance and take the colt wide heading into the homestretch. Guest Suite, the favorite, responded, pulling away from the leaders on a sloppy track.

Takeoff finished third.
