Frances A. Genter’s Smile, a highly-accomplished and versatile 4-year-old colt with jockey Jacinto Vasquez aboard, broke sharply from the rail and immediately had company on the outside from 4-year-old filly Pine Tree Lane. The duel went on to deep stretch before Smile edged away to score by 1 1/2 lengths. Remarkably, Smile went into the Sprint at liberal odds of 11-to-1 after a dull effort on a ‘sloppy’ track at Philadelphia Park after competing in longer races in his three previous starts. The victory earned Smile Eclipse champion sprinter honors.

A Florida-bred by In Reality, Smile began his career with seven straight victories at Calder for trainer Frank Gomez and the rest of his career between Genter Stable trainers Carl Nafzger in the Midwest and F.S. (Scotty) Schulhofer, the latter his trainer for the Breeders’ Cup.
