Trained by Anthony Dutrow and ridden by Joe Bravo, Rush Now covered the 1 1/6 miles over a sloppy track after the race was taken off the turf in 1:44 3/5 and paid $2.80 as the 2-5 favorite in the field reduced to three. It was another 4 ½ lengths back to Hermosillo, who completed the $11.20 exacta. Keep Me Informed was another neck behind. There was no place or show wagering.
A 4-year-old gelding by Tiznow from the Wild Rush mare Dirty Rush, Rush Now won for the second straight time and the win was his sixth in 17 starts. He has now bankrolled $403,015 for his connections.
