English term or phrase: ... could come from off the pace...
The horses are spreading now. He was right. He said that the gray horse could come from off the pace...
Roser Berdagu
Spanish translation:see explanation
Explanation:
"Come from off the pace" quiere decir que el caballo empieza más lento que los líderes pero termina alcanzándolos.

Off the pace When a horse isn't keeping up with other horses in a race
http://www.thehorsesmouth.co.uk/glossary_io.html

S horses are those who come from off the pace, usually making one big late run at the tiring leaders (http://www.paceadvantage.com/pa2000ug.htm)

Similar texts in Spanish:

Los caballos que poseen una salida fulgurante se sitúan en cabeza desde el inicio, mientras que los jockeys con caballos de salida menos explosiva pero con una mayor capacidad de progresión, galopan a un ritmo más lento al principio, reservando fuerzas para el sprint final. (http://www.uno-contenidos.com/semana21/Cdeportes/deporte/dep...

Give The Slip mantiene el liderato hasta los dos últimos furlongs pero ahí se ve superado por la aceleración de Endless Hall y más tarde por Kalanisi, Observatory y Fantastic Light, que parece venir con mucha fuerza. (http://www.masdecaballos.com/Disciplina_Reportajes_Reportaje...

La idea es "acelerar al final para alcanzar al líder".

Espero que te sirva.
