1995 Early Times Manhattan Handicap Grade I

Awad rallied from last to first to nose Blues Traveller at the wire in the Grade I $500000-added Early Times Manhattan over the mile and a quarter inner-turf course. "This is a mile-and-a-half horse," said Dave Donk, Awad's trainer. "So this is a huge race for him. He's got to get lucky, he needs pace, and he got it." The final time of 1:58 2/5 was eye popping --just four ticks off the track record. And Awad returned $16.20 for a $2 win bet. But a photo was needed to separate the two. "I was just screaming, 'Come on wire, come on wire,' " said Chris mccarron, who rode Blues Traveller.
