Veteran Ridin With Biden held on for a last-gasp victory over Amatteroftime to earn his second straight win. The dark bay gelding sat just off the early pace while racing four wide around the first turn and moved up to be widest of five in a line across the track challenging for the lead down the backstretch. He stuck his head in front at the top of the stretch and was pulling away down the lane despite drifting in and out, but Amatteroftime was closing fast and true and just failed to catch the gelding on the line. Riding With Biden, who won the 1 1/2-mile GIII Greenwood Cup over this track in September, was coming off a 1 1/4-length victory in the Turkey Trot S. over this same course and distance Nov. 23.

Post Time remained unbeaten in this third lifetime victory, and the first at the stakes level here. A two length winner on unveiling Oct. 7 against a local maiden field which credited next-out 11-length winner Prince of Jericho (Munnings) in its tally, and a dominant 6 3/4-length victor lastout Oct. 27 against optional claimers at the venue, he settled way off the early pace after the jump as Johnyz From Albany put up all the running through :22.76 and :45.81 splits. Given his cue leaving the far bend and rolling under a full head of steam, Post Time swallowed up rivals while four wide and shifted out in the lane as he cruised by the long-time leader. Eric Camacho remained motionless as the grey coasted in.

The second multiple winner from three to race, and the first to gain black-type for his young dam, Post Time has a weanling half-sister by McKinzie. This is the family of Maryland stalwart,
MSW Undercover (Allen’s Prospect) as well as GSP Bye Bye J (Uncaptured). MGISW Rose=s Cantina(Naskra), her full-sister GISW Fancy Naskra; GISW Montreal Red (D=Accord) and his fullsister English MSW Princess Accord all hail from the fourth dam, who claims a busy black-type branch beneath her.
