As the field passed by me during 94th running of the Remsen at Aqueduct I heard the jockeys shouting and looked up to see Alan Garcia on # 3 Big Truck betting squeezed from both sides as the #5 Trust N Dustan ridden by Cornelio Velasquez moved in on him while # 1 Court Vision and Eibar Coa the eventual winners came out into Big Truck to get around horses in front of him. Big Truck took the worst of it and lost ALL monmentum as the field straighened away down the strecth. Impressively Court Vision won the race by running down Atoned and just getting by him in the shadow of the wire. Big Truck ran very well to get third after being dead last with 3/16ths of a mile to run.
