Laoban Wins Jim Dandy Stakes at Saratoga Race Course
The $600,000 Grade 2 Jim Dandy Stakes was contested Saturday, July 30 at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, New York. Three year olds were featured as they took to Saratoga's dirt track and raced 1 1/8 miles. Incredibly, 27-1 longshot Laoban secured the first win of his career by wiring the strong field of six - that's breaking maiden in style! Governor Malibu, who finished fourth in the Belmont last out finished a good second at 4-1 odds while 2-1 second choice Destin got up for third. 7-5 favorite Mohaymen stumbled at the start and finished a disappointing fourth while Race Me Home finished fifth and Belmont Stakes winner Creator wound up an uber-disappointing last.
