CERRO BATTLES TO GAME WIN

Having taken a long time to recover from a suicidal ride in the Fountain of Youth Stakes, CERRO found his form again with a gutsy hard fought win in the Canonero II Stakes at Pimlico. Taking the lead from the gate, he was briefly passed in the stertch but battled backi to gain a deserved win. He battled hard and prevailed by a neck. Hopefully this win willhave restored his confidence and he can go and win in Graded races in the next few months. He remains an exciting prosepct. Congratulations especially to Rick Mettee whose first winner as private trainer to Team Valor this was.
