LEA Close Runner-up in Donn-G1

Winner of the 2014 Donn H.-G1, LEA came within 3/4 length of repeating that victory in this year’s renewal of this great handicap. The son of FIRST SAMURAI tracked the pace inside for the majority of this 1 1/8-mile challenge. He angled out into the stretch, then had to angle out again when the leader drifted nearing the sixteenth pole, and continued to narrow the margin to the wire. LEA has seven wins and five placings in 14 starts and earnings $898,618.
