After two frustrating near misses in his last two races, finishing second in the Grade 1 United Nations and second in the Grade 2 Nijinsky Stakes Can’thelpbelieving finally had some running luck and won today’s Sky Classic (Grade 2) at Woodbine. It also brings his earnings to $589,219.00 for this six year old gelding of European breeding, being by Duke Of Marmalade out of a Soviet Star mare. He’s been so consistent since he came from Ireland as a two year old and has improved year by year. Many congratulations to Albert Frassetto.
By the way, Messi won it last year!
