State of Play - 2011 With Anticipation (G2)

Well-rated on the lead, State of Play turned back Optimizer's stretch bid to win Saratoga Race Course's Grade 2, $150000 With Anticipation for 2-year-olds on Thursday. State of Play cleared up front, dictating fractions of 24.24, 49.78 and 1:14.64 before Optimzer drew to the pacesetter's throatlatch with a furlong to travel. Given left-handed encouragement by Ramon Dominguez, State of Play brushed off that challenge to prevail by a half-length. The final time for 1 1/16 miles over the firm Mellon turf course was 1:43.97. The With Anticipation was State of Play's first start around two turns, having come from just off the pace to win a 5 ½-furlong turf sprint on July 27 at the Spa.
