KOBE’S BACK Recovers From Terrible Start to Place in G1 Bing Crosby

KOBE’S BACK spotted the field 13 lengths after the first quarter mile but made an impressive rally to place in the six-furlong Bing Crosby S.-G1 at Del Mar, beaten less than three lengths. The 4-year-old colt by FLATTER broke badly to the inside leaving post position one and it took Gary Stevens a while to get him into the race. KOBE’S BACK was still more than eight lengths off the lead after five furlongs but continued a relentless rally through the stretch to get up for third. This year KOBE’S BACK won Keeneland’s Grade 3 Commonwealth S. in his second start after finishing runner-up in the San Carlos S.-G2 at Santa Anita in his seasonal debut. Last year at three he won the San Vicente S.-G2 by 5 1/4 lengths.
