Cody’s Wish broke last as the 3-5 favorite was near the back of the talent pack as the field hit the turn.
Junior Alvarado guided Cody’s Wish to the outside, and the horse with an incomparable connection to teen Cody Dorman, started to roll.
And roll he did, by everyone. At the finish of the $1,000,000 stake, Cody’s Wish was by himself at the finish line, having dusted his foes by open lengths.
The beautiful and emotional racing story continues!! 💙

“Cody’s Wish” is named for Cody Dorman, a young fan who was born with Wolf–Hirschhorn syndrome.
