Measured Time Dominates in the G1 Manhattan S. at Saratoga

In a stunning turn of events, Godolphin, trainer Charlie Appleby, and jockey William Buick found success in the G1 Manhattan S. at Saratoga with their entry, Measured Time. The Frankel colt led the field throughout the race, proving to be the right elixir for the team after a disappointing start to the Belmont Stakes Racing Festival.

After a string of lackluster performances in the festival, including favorites falling short and unexpected outcomes, Measured Time stepped up to the plate as the 3-1 underdog. Ridden aggressively by Buick, the colt maintained a strong position at the front of the pack, fending off challengers and crossing the finish line in a swift 1:51.94 for the mile and three-sixteenths.

The victory was a much-needed redemption for Godolphin, Appleby, and Buick, who had faced setbacks in previous races. Nations Pride and Far Bridge followed closely behind, rounding out the top three in the prestigious race.

Measured Time’s impressive performance in the G1 Manhattan S. serves as a reminder of the unpredictable nature of horse racing and the thrill of a underdog victory. As the celebrations begin for the winning team, fans and analysts alike are left in awe of the colt’s dominating display on the track.
