Lava Man Wins Gr1 Gold Cup

Monday, 10th July 2006

At Hollywood Park in California, 5YO gelding Lava Man (Slew City Slew-Lil'l10 furlongs) Ms. Leonard, by Nostalgia's Star) proved equal to the weight he was asked to carry in winning the US$750,000 Gr1 Hollywood Gold Cup Stakes (10 furlongs). Ridden by Corey Nakatani for trainer Doug O'Neill, only a nose separated Lava Man from 6YO entire Ace Blue (Coax Me Clyde)-Queen Blue, by So Blue). Third was 6YO entire Super Frolic (Pine Bluff-Lindsay Frolic, by Mt Livermore). The victory, according to thoroughbredinternet.com, took Lava Man's record to 12 wins from 32 career starts with earnings of US$2,904,706, and 5 victories in a row.
