Graduate Favorites Doo Wop Hanover and Rockeyed Optimist Leading Resurgence of Steve Elliott Barn

Steve Elliott has the ability to boil everything down to the simplest terms. Why is he doing so well this year after a rare down period in his career?

“I have good horses,” he replied.

It’s obviously a bit more complicated than that, but Elliott does have a point. In Rockeyed Optimist and Doo Wop Hanover he has two horses that are on top of their games, making good money and figure to dominate in the $250,000 final of the Graduate Series for 4-year-old pacers tonight at the Meadowlands. They could be the two best horses he’s had since Well Said and Donato Hanover.
