Declan with a strong third place finish today

Declan had a strong third place performance in todays third race at Finger Lakes.  Trainer Matthew Clarke is very pleased with Declans performance since shipping up to New York from Evangeline Downs in Louisiana.  Declan has already won one race since arriving at Finger Lakes and is getting stronger with each start.  We will be aiming Declan towards a few more races this year, likely at 6 furlongs.
