Maggi Moss’s It Happened Again will need to elevate his game if he wants to defend the crown he won last year in the $125,000 Razorback Handicap (G3), but the gelding’s new trainer, Chris Richard, thinks he is positioned to pull it off.
Last season, the son of Proud Citizen found his best form and rolled through three straight wins, including the Razorback, for trainer Steve Asmussen. He started this season with a win in the Claiming Crown Jewel at the Fair Grounds in December but then had unlucky trips in Oaklawn’s Fifth Season Stakes and the Essex Handicap. Since his last performance, he moved across a road in barn area, but the shift is about the rest of the year and not about disappointment with Asmussen.
