Getting Ready for the Big Fight [01:48]
Kid Blast is in deep thought as he warms up for his Big Day at The Big A. As you can see he is collecting himself and focusing his energy on what could be his first Big Win! He is in the zone! Unlike the grassy bright warm and sunny paddock at Saratoga, here at Aqueduct the saddling enclosure is all business and not for the faint of heart. If you are here you are a serious horse aficionado. Getting Ready to Rumble!

Grassy - The Red Smith (G2) [02:46]
Grassy scored his first graded stakes win in the 51st running of the Grade 2, $150000 Red Smith, charging widest of all down the stretch to edge Rescue Squad by a length in the 1 3/8 mile turf race. Ridden by Joe Bravo, the 4-year-old son of El Prado tucked in along the rail well behind Strike a Deal, who led through a half-mile in 51.52 and a mile in 1:43.37 over the soft course. Rounding the turn, Bravo tipped Grassy to the outside and the gray colt responded with a rousing late run that carried him under the wire in 2:20.06. "The minute the gates opened, he gave me this sensation like 'Yo jock, don't worry about it. I got this,'" said Bravo. "He gave me the sensation that at any time he could've gone and run 'em over." The victory was the second in six start this year for Grassy, who in his previous race finished third, beaten 1 ½ lengths, by Winchester in the Grade 1 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Invitational over a yielding course at Belmont Park. "Off his race in the Turf Classic, we thought this was a good spot for him," said Ben Colebrook, assistant to winning trainer Christophe Clement. "He put in a big effort that day. Today, he was even more impressive." Owned by Adele Dilschneider and Claiborne Farm, Grassy returned $4.70 for a $2 win bet as the 6-5 favorite, and earned $90000.
