Bob Baffert had #13 Only Be Cause ready to run. This 2-to-1 shot led by a slim margin for much of the stretch, but  couldn’t quite hang in there as #7 Lahcotah nailed him in the last jump.

As the race began, Only Be Cause sat a length or two off of pacesetters #10 Downtown Banker, #5 Pemba at U.T.K. and Lahcotah. Entering the stretch, Downtown Banker shook free, as Lahcotah dropped back three lengths.

Jockey Jesus Rios was all over Only Be Cause as he pulled next to Downtown Banker in midstretch and battled head-and-head with him to the wire. But, surprisingly, Lahcotah came again on the outside with a quick surge to nail them both.

I bet $350 on Only Be Cause at 2-to-1.
