Castle Village Farm’s Saint Finian won the 2nd race at Belmont on Friday, October 30th. The race was a $25,000 claimer at a mile and a sixteenth on the dirt (moved off the turf) for a purse of $47,000. Ridden expertly by apprentice Eric Cancel, Saint Finian broke alertly, settled in mid-pack up the backstretch, then took control in the last eighth of a mile to win by a length, going away.
CVF claimed Saint Finian in August at Saratoga. In four starts for us since then, he now has a win and a third.
