Hot and Heavy Beats Favorite Musical America in 9th

The ninth feature race for one mile on the turf everyone believed the favorite Musical America led by Daniel Centeno would have sweeper this one, but Hot and Heavy had something else in mind. 

Hot and Heavy set the pace with an early lead  after the first turn leaving competitors a few lengths behind. Musical America came fighting from behind after a slightly steadied start. Then, advanced on the turn, and drew clear very gamely along the last stretch, but ran out of time to capture the leader. He came close but finished 3/4 lengths behind Hot and Heavy and 3 lengths ahead of Up Your Cash, the third place finisher. 

He clocked in at 1:36.18 for the win and the total Win Place Show pool came to $203,852.  The charts are as follows:
