Wide Trip Does Not Stop Soi Phet

by Steve Andersen
Soi Phet (by Tizbud) won his second stakes of the summer in Wednesday’s first division of the Harry Brubaker Stakes at a mile.

Ridden by Kent Desormeaux, Soi Phet ($4.20) was three-wide while racing in the six-path on the backstretch and four-wide on the turn before drawing off in the final furlong. Soi Phet ran a mile in 1:35.05, the second-fastest time of the meeting at the distance.

Soi Phet finished 2 1-2 lengths in front of Solid Wager, who was a nose in front of Grazen Sky in a field of six.
