The $150,000 Oceanport (G3) featured older horses going 1 1/16 miles on the turf. 5-1 fourth choice Silent Roar sat well off the pace set by 4-1 third choice Smart Enough, then Stewart Elliott took him four wide into the stretch and he closed with a rush to win by a length over 26-1 Kiss The Kid in 1:38.99 over the firm going. 6-5 favorite Kip Deville finished a neck back in third.
Jockey Stewart Elliott said, "We ended up sitting a few more lengths off of it today, but we got a good trip. When I asked him, he really picked it up for me."
Winning owner-trainer Michael Moran added, "He has a lot of talent. You just don't know which horse will show up, the aggressive type or the one that wants to lay back."
