Serve the King had been knocking at the door of a blacktype score and broke through on 25th August. Stalking from second through the first quarter of the race, the bay was overtaken, but maintained his spot on the hedge in third. The top two shot off to a double-digit lead. Closing the gap on the backstretch, Serve the King launched a two-wide bid at the top of the lane, running down Ry's The Guy late too provide trainer Chad Brown with his fifth winner on the card.
"We've been trying to get this horse around three turns since last year and we just didn't have the races available," said Brown. "He got started a little late last year and by the time we were really ready to start him, it was going to be in the Red Smith and he got injured so I had to stop on him. Mr. Brant has just been so patient, he always is with these horses and lets us give them the time and he came back really well this year."
