One More Stride Works For Samuel Parot In Sacramento

Rancho Murieta, Calif.—Sept. 26

Aboard the 12-year-old bay gelding Atlantis (Andiamo—Royal Bravour L), Parot shaved over half of a second off the U.S. rider Quentin Judge’s target time of 37.55 seconds to finish at the head of the 24-starter field.
