FAR FROM OVER Rallies From Last to Take Withers-G3

Making only his second career start, FAR FROM OVER overcame a horrible break to run down the leaders in deep stretch and capture the $250,000 Withers S.-G3 by 1 3/4 lengths. The 3-year-old son of Champion BLAME stumbled badly at the break and found himself at the back of the pack through the early going of this 1 1/16-mile contest. FAR FROM OVER began his rally with about three furlongs to go, angled off the rail at the top of the lane and put in a courageous closing kick to run past the leaders inside the sixteenth pole to earn the victory. In his debut December 12, FAR FROM OVER lost the lead in the stretch but battled back to win a Maiden Special Weight here by a nose. FAR FROM OVER, who was bred by Alexander Groves Matz, LLC out of the graded-placed Alchemist, by A.P. Indy, sold for $550,000 at last year’s Keeneland September sale. He is trained by Todd Pletcher for Steven Marshall’s Black Rock Thoroughbreds.
