Heavy Favorite Tempt Fate Leaves No Doubt In Nodouble

With jockey Joe Talamo in the irons, Tempt Fate gained control early and never looked back, setting fractions of :22 and :45 3/5 before drawing off to win the 6-furlong event for Arkansas-breds in a final time of 1:10 over a fast track.

Man in the Can, the 2020 Arkansas-bred Horse of the Year, finished second, a 1/2-length in front of third-place finisher Bandit Point.

“He’s a funny horse, he doesn’t like to go with the pony before the race, but I tell you what, (trainer) Carl Deville has done a hell of a job with this horse,” Talamo said. “He’s 3 for 3 this year. Last year, I was fortunate to win a race on him, and I’m very fortunate that he put me back on him for this race.”

Tempt Fate improved his career record to 4-1-2 in 10 career starts and has now earned $256,100. He returned $3.20, $3 and $2.60.
