Making his first start since being claimed, Spy in the Sky finished third.The victory, Demonstrative’s second straight Grade 1 win after taking the $150,000 New York Turf Writers Cup on Aug. 25, established his undisputed leadership in the National Steeplechase Association’s championship division.Trained by Richard Valentine, the seven-year-old Elusive Quality gelding raised his 2014 earnings to $202,500.
