Trainer Chris Block could have entered Team Block's Ioya Bigtime in either the Grade III Arlington Handicap or the Grade III Stars and Stripes Stakes but opted at entry time for the latter race, a decision which proved to be fortunate as the son of Dynaformer stole the $150,000 race at odds of 41-1 over favored Musketier.
Trainer Dale Romans has accounted for two-thirds of the 2012 Mid-America Triple after sending Albaugh Family Stable's Cozzetti to win the Grade III $200,000 American Derby by a neck in a thrilling finish over Jim Tafel's All Stormy. Shaun Bridgmohan rode the son of Cozzene who covered a mile and three-sixteenths over "good" turf in 1:57.42.
