Jackson Bend - 2011 Forego (G1)

Jackson Bend bookended his meet in stylish fashion, coming from off the pace to win the 32nd running of the $250000 Grade 1 Forego on Saturday at Saratoga Race Course. Attempting to build upon his victory in the July 23 James Marvin on opening day, Jackson Bend was able to work out a good trip from post position 1, racing in seventh behind fractions of 22.09 and 44.45 seconds set by Hamazing Destiny and favored Sidney's Candy. Jockey Corey Nakatani guided Jackson Bend between horses on the run into the stretch, and the colt closed stoutly to register a 3 ¼-length victory over Jersey Town, who finished a head in front of third-place finisher Aikenite. Jackson Bend, who returned $8.90 for a $2 win wager as the 3-1 second choice, completed the seven furlongs in 1:22.08.
