The son of Roll With Joe took the front in the second quarter and from there controlled the race. Sprinting home in 28 seconds, he won with ease by one and a quarter lengths.

For Racing Hill this was his third major stakes win for the season and takes his seasons earnings to $1,263,612. That total makes him the highest earning three year old of the year.

Bred and raced by Tom Hill, Racing Hill is out of the American Ideal mare Chasing Ideals, who's fourth dam is the former champion Silk Stockings.

Racing Hill is one of seven $100,000+ earners to already emerge from the debut crop of Roll With Joe in America.
