Betsy Mead’s Forgotten Man made a winning move on the final turn at the Carolina Horse Park and drew clear to a 1 1/2-length victory in the $25,000 Sandhills Cup, the featured optional allowance hurdle at the 64th annual Stoneybrook Steeplechase on Saturday in Raeford, N.C. Irv Naylor’s Saint Jerome rallied late to finish second, 2 1/4 lengths clear of Perfect Peace Racing Stable’s Marq Your Bible. With Gerard Galligan in the saddle for trainer Doug Fout, Forgotten Man ran the Sandhills Cup’s 2 3/8 miles in 4:39 on ground rated as good. The complexion of the Sandhills Cup changed early when anticipated pacesetter Bau Bai Gold lost Ross Geraghty at the first fence.
