Marilyn's Guy - 2012 Excelsior (G3)

Marilyn's Guy earned his second career stakes victory Saturday afternoon at Aqueduct Racetrack, holding off a resurgent San Pablo to take the 100th running of the Grade 3, $150000 Excelsior by a neck. The 6-year-old son of Yonaguska, who came off an 11-month layoff to win the As Indicated overnight stakes at the Big A on February 18, broke alertly and quickly moved up to within a half-length of San Pablo as he led the field of six through an opening quarter-mile in 24.00 seconds and a half in 48.81. Surging to the front with a little more than three-eighths of a mile to go, the big gray gelding opened up by 2 ½ lengths at the top of the stretch, and despite wearying through the final yards, was able to muster just enough to hit the wire in front. Marilyn's Guy covered the 1 1/8 miles of the Excelsior -- the final graded stakes of the Big A's inner track meet -- in 1:52.54.
