Comma To The Top Wins US Gr1 Cashcall Futurity

Monday, 20th December 2010

In the US, favoured juvenile gelding Comma To The Top (Bwana Charlie-Maggies Storm, by Stormy Atlantic) delayed the start for 30 minutes after losing a racing plate in the saddling paddock & having to be reshod (the 1st blacksmith on the scene was injured in the process of replacing it), but then notched his 5th successive win with a 1.75-lengths victory in the US$750,000 Gr1 Cashcall Futurity (8.5 furlongs) for 2YOs at Hollywood Park in California. Comma To The Top (ridden by Corey Nakatani for trainer Peter Miller) defeated fast-finishing ridgeling JP's Gusto (Successful Appeal-Call Her Magic, by Caller I.D.) & the colt Clubhouse Ride (Candy Ride-Seeking Results, by Seeking The Gold). Comma To The Top (a US$5,000 weanling at the 2008 Ocala Breeders October Sale & subsequently a US$22,000 2YO at this season's Ocala Breeders April Sale) now boasts 6 wins (including both November's Gr3 Generous Stakes over 8 furlongs at Hollywood Park & & Listed Real Quiet Stakes over 8.5 furlongs at Hollywood Park) & a runner-up from 10 starts for US$551,600 earnings.
