Picks and Ponderings: 2017 Jim Edgar Illinois Futurity Recap

Before today, just two horses had won both the Sun Power Stakes and the Jim Edgar Illinois Futurity.  Rambling Richie did it for trainer Larry Rivelli in 2013, and Dom the Bomb performed the same feat for Rivelli in 2014.  This year, lightning struck thrice.  Rivelli sent out Pass the Gravy to victory in the Sun Power Stakes three weeks ago; this afternoon at Hawthorne Race Course, Pass the Gravy completed the sweep with a game rail-running victory in the Jim Edgar Illinois Futurity.

Head over to Picks and Ponderings, read my look back at today’s Jim Edgar Illinois Futurity, and let me know your thoughts on the race in the comments!
