For a while it looked as though Night Officer was destined to win the Mister Diaz Stakes at Laurel Park. Entering the stretch, the hard-knocking 7-year-old was a half-length in front and digging in after racing 3-wide around the turn. What’s more, he’d already demonstrated a propensity for big performances on the Laurel surface, setting the track record for 5-1/2 furlongs (1:00.53) on the turf in 2012. But despite delivering a game effort, he was caught just inside the final sixteenth, finishing a close second while drawing clear of the rest of the field. Night Officer exited the race with a lifetime record of 40-7-4-10 and $355,158 in earnings.
