Rashaan didn’t arrive in the United States until his 7-year-old campaign in 2019. On Thursday, he proved to his connections that he was worth the wait, leading a six-horse field out of the final hurdles and fending off stablemate Redicean’s stretch-drive push to win the Grade 1, $100,000 New York Turf Writers Cup steeplechase in the card’s opener at Saratoga Race Course.
