February 23, 2018, Fort Worth, Texas, Cowtown Coliseum — Craig Brooks says Grandiose Guy, who’s by BHR Frenchies Socks and out of For The Fame, takes a little encouraging to make his best runs. On Friday, the duo showed their grit in Fort Worth. Brooks and the 5-year-old stallion, owned by Crystal Shumate, were the first of 10 to run down the alley of Cowtown Coliseum and the result was a flawless run of 13.790 seconds, moving them into second place overall.
