Today in this stakes race of 5 furlongs Mack The Slew was able to make his second win here at Hoosier. Thompson and Mack the Slew came into the last turn on the rail behind the number 3 & 3c. “Coming on the stretch and knowing he was a younger horse, I tried to break the center and couldn’t, so I had to make a move on the outside. I knew with him being so young he needed a a clear shot to win. Once we moved to the outside he really got into stride and I let him take it home,” said Thompson. This is Thompson 2nd stakes win this year. Mack┬áthe Slew and Thompson were clearly a combination for success in this 9 horse field with a total purse of $84,000.
