Never worse than second at any point, Adios Charlie surged in the final stages for his second win in three starts. Rajiv Maragh was aboard as Adios Charlie covered the 1 mile in 1:36.81 over the sloppy track.
Trainer Stanley Hough said the colt might run next in the Preakness.
"There are a lot of options for 3-year-olds," he said. "We’ll try to make the right decision. Obviously he’s got some talent, and hopefully he’ll move forward."
Adios Charlie paid $14.60, $6.30 and $4.90. Astrology returned $3.90 and $3.20. Justin Phillip paid $4.10 to show.
