Otto the Conqueror Triumphant in Springboard Mile

In a two-horse throwdown, Three Chimneys Farm’s Otto the Conqueror  outdueled the previously unbeaten Glengarry  and inched away to post a three-quarters of a length victory over the frontrunner in the $300,000 Remington Springboard Mile Stakes Dec. 15.

Routing for the first time Friday evening at Remington Park, both juveniles grew tired down the stretch, with a final furlong from the winner in :14.65 following taxing middle fractions. Third-place Magic Grant  was charging hard at the finish. 

After pressing splits of :23.48, :46.35 and 1:11.40, Otto the Conquerer reached the wire on a muddy track in 1:39.91 under Tyler Gaffalione. The colt paid $4.80 to win, improving to 3-for-4 and capturing his first stakes. He gave Hall of Fame trainer Steve Asmussen his seventh win in the Springboard Mile.

Third Street , My Buddy Mel , and Raging Torrent  completed the order of finish.
