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.
