Ben's Cat came within a neck of setting a new Maryland Million record for victories, but fell short as Ellendale Racing's Roadhog pulled ahead in a photo finish in the $125,000 Maryland Million Turf.
Both horses finished the one-mile course in 1:27.06. Ben's Cat trailed early, but was second going into the turn. In the final stretch, Ben's Cat -- trained by King Leatherbury -- pulled ahead but was then outpaced by the lunging Roadhog.
