Pataky Kid, dismissed at 42-1 in his career opener on the Churchill dirt July 1, did well after a bad trip to be third, albeit by 10 1/2 lengths. He made the switch to Polytrack by rallying to take a local maiden Aug. 9, and was the second choice here to Muppet Man. With jockey Garrett Gomez coming in to ride, the bay came away cleanly from the three hole and settled along the fence in third as Muppet Man went up to show the way. The 3-5 chalk turned for home after three-quarters in 1:11.57 and seemed to be travelling easily, but Pataky Kid came off the fence and rolled by him easily. Though he ducked out a bit after hitting the front, the Oklahoma-bred straightened himself out and bounded clear.
