Metropolitan Handicap 2013 Results Payouts Replays

Sahara Sky Met Mile Photo Finish

Sahara Sky & Cross Traffic photo finish in the 2013 Metropolitan Handicap.

Today was an excited day in horse racing across the country but the attention mostly revolved around Belmont Park’s Metropolitan Mile Handicap and Acorn Stakes.

With 6/1 odds, Sahara Sky crossed the finish line first with Joel Rosario on the mount in the 2013 Grade I $750,000 Metropolitan Mile for three-year-olds and up at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. Cross Traffic finished second and Flat Out finished third. The Metropolitan Mile was an extremely thrilling race to watch (see replay below) as Sahara Sky won by a nose “nipping Cross Traffic at the wire.” Expert favorite Flat Out got caught up in traffic inhibiting his chances at winning the Met Mile.
