A 3-year-old colt took the Aug. 14 $150,000 Mahony by three lengths.  His name: Big Invasion. 


The race was a 5 1/2-furlong turf sprint for 3-year-olds at Saratoga Race Course. 

"Today was his best race," said trainer Christophe Clement. "He's a very good horse, he keeps winning, so there's no doubt about it, but today I thought he behaved better than he's ever done."

But will he run in this year's Breeders Cup?

“I've always thought he was the best 3-year-old in the country on the grass sprinting. We just don't have a program with Grade 1, Grade 2, that's the way the program is made,” said Clement post-race in regards to a start in Grade I company. “But, I don't know, I'd have to talk to [owner] Mr. [Dean] Reeves. I need to give him some time at some stage and maybe we can think about a race like the Breeders Cup even if it's very ambitious. Why not?”
