There was something vaguely familiar about the eighth race at Saratoga on Thursday, August 31. As was the case in a similar allowance race at Saratoga just 25 days earlier, this race featured Manifest Destiny jumping out to an early lead then fending off numerous challengers down the stretch. But that’s where the similarities end. Manifest Destiny finished second in that race, overtaken inside the final 70 yards. That didn’t happen Thursday. The other horses in the race tried, of course, but Manifest Destiny was having none of it. He reached the stretch a half-length ahead of his nearest rival and refused to concede so much as an inch, digging in and maintaining that margin to the finish. The race marked the third consecutive in-the-money finish for Manifest Destiny and pushed his career earning to more than $124,000 for his brief career.
