Jockey Chris McCarron said of the beaten favorite, he didn't do anything tricky or anything like that. He just ran three jumps then took one back. I guess it's fair to say he's got a common streak in him." Gray Echelon finished third for the fourth time in nine outings this year.

"This is the best he's been since the Laurel Futurity last fall. The cooler weather does him a world of good."
