Seek Again sets track record in Fourstardave

Seek Again, bottled up on the rail heading into the stretch, was able to break free and get past Grand Arch to win the Fourstardave in record time at Saratoga Race Course on Saturday.

The race started with a hot pace, as Silver Max and Sayaad set the early fractions.  The two started to give way, giving the lead to stalking Grand Arch.  Seek Again appeared as if he would be trapped behind the tiring horses, finally found an opening to burst through, squeezing by Grand Arch to win.

Seek Again stopped the timer in 1:33.25, shaving .17 off the mark L'Oiseau d'Argent set back in 2004.

Seek Again, third in the Manhattan on Belmont Stakes Day, will seek out middle distances for his next few starts, which could include the Breeders' Cup Mile at Santa Anita in November.
