CM Got Overserved takes The Memorial

CM Got Overserved has really come into his own as he strode to another convincing victory on Monday in the $8,350 Memorial Stakes.  Sent off as the 4/5 favorite, CM Got Overserved didn’t break as sharply as he did last time out when he took home the Far West Futurity Final, but he got back in order quickly and within a few yards was right back up on the lead.  Jockey Joe Crispin went to a vigorous ride as CM Got Overserved gradually pulled away to a length win.   Warnock finished up in second with long shot Booken running third.
