He’s a big horse so I was able to make my way out from the rail and down the backstretch, I let him stretch his legs out a little and it worked out great.“He gets a little discombobulated when he switches leads…I think if someone came up to him though, he would have fought back. I had plenty of horse left.”Ridden by Santiago Gonzalez, English-bred It’s The Ice was off at 3-1 and paid $2.80 and $2.10.Sorryaboutnothing sat second until deep stretch and ran gamely for third money under Mario Gutierrez, finishing a neck in front of an on-coming Arcature.
