Mr. Roary

Mr. Roary is either all on – or not. With an intriguing history of running either really great, or not so good, he put it all together to score a big one in the Eddie D. Stakes at Santa Anita in late Sept. It was the first graded stakes score for the Scat Daddy colt, who looks to keep his good luck going in the Breeders’ Cup Mile.

Not only was the Eddie D. a cut back in distance for four-year-old gelding, but he and rider Tyler Conner had to dodge a loose horse in the field. It was also the young rider’s first win at Santa Anita.

“He's been running long all this time and the Eddie D. sounded good,” trainer George Papaprodromou said. “Obviously, it worked out well.”

One race earlier, Mr. Roary had finished last of 13 in the Del Mar Handicap at one mile and three-eighths.

“I knew we were a longshot, but he handled everything well,” said Conner, 23. “I just ran relaxed and listened to what George asked me to do. He's a bit of a long striding horse, so I figured I'd just let him settle. I was sitting behind the favorite (Om) most of the way and when I saw him angle out, I kind of jumped in. The loose horse (Guns Loaded, who unseated Rafael Bejarano at the break) made things a little interesting, but we got through and when he saw daylight, he kicked on.”
