The aptly named So Brilliant (Medaglia d’Oro) continued to live up to his name with a front-running victory in the GIII Hollywood Prevue S., Hollywood Park’s Thanksgiving Day feature. Breaking slightly to the inside, the grey quickly strode up between Hodge (City Place) and Galex (Flatter) up the backstretch, before assuming a slight advantage through a quarter in :22.94. Passing the halfmile marker, Galex suddenling faltered and was quickly pulled up by jockey
Rafael Bejarano as Hodge inched closer to the frontrunner. With Hodge moving up along the rail and Brother Francis (Lion Heart) mounting his challenge from the outside, So Brilliant was asked for more, and he delivered, as he crossed the wire a 1/2 length ahead of the latter, with Hodge holding on for third.

 “He’s still learning day to day,’’ said Martin Garcia. “He has a lot more than he showed today. He’s still a little green. He broke in a little bit, but went right on with it. Let me tell you, he’s a good horse. He was doing everything on his own, I didn’t even have to ask him.”
