My Sonny Boy (ridden by Timothy Thornton for trainer Scott Becker) defeated fellow 5YO gelding Princeville Condo (Morluc-Perfectlywonderful, by Mister Frisky) & 6YO entire Gentleman Chester (Chester House-Limbo, by A.P.Indy). My Sonny Boy took his record to 5 wins & 4 placings from 22 starts for US$162,081 earnings.
