Why We Bought This Horse

  • This 3 YO Maryland-sired, Maryland-bred gelding has demonstrated glimpses of talent over it short racing life.  He has run at short and long distances and had a few attempts on turf.  All of the state bonus programs are in place with this horse.
  • We think we can make some distinct improvements in his training and care plans to get him to perform up to his potential.  Our plan is to stretch him out on the turf and hopefully see some of that same success we saw with our Timonium claim from last year, Feel Proud.
  • We think this horse can benefit from Beth Worton’s care as we move him to her barn on the claim.  The trainer who had this young horse has been on an extended losing streak.  A new barn could change his course.
  • You can ignore the race the horse was claimed from.  He was hung out wide on tight turns and was not in a race where he could be competitive.
  • In a great piece of interesting trivia, the horse was bred by none other than Burt Bacharach, the legendary singer/song writer.

Thoughts from the Trainer

Notes from our trainer Beth Worton:

I like this horse to claim because he looks like he could improve with distance and hopefully/possibly turf. He is still young at 3 yrs old and MD bred/MD million eligible. In training he is very nervous, and that is something we are working on. Upon claiming him he was on the slight side so I immediately had our dentist check him out and he had 4 caps bugging him. He already appears to have picked up weight and is very friendly.
