After winning the 2015 Last Tycoon (gr. IIIT) at the distance by 3 1/4 lengths at odds of 42-1, the 6-year-old son of Sageburg wowed again at 10 furlongs May 29 in the $200,000 Charles Whittingham Stakes (gr. IIT).
Trainer Peter Miller was forward about his intentions bringing grade I winner Finnegans Wake back off a nearly nine-month layoff last time out in the Thunder Road Stakes (gr. IIIT), which was a prep for bigger and better things.
Da Big Hoss continued his good form in long turf races when he secured his second graded stakes win of the season going 1 1/2 miles on the grass April 23 in the Dixiana Elkhorn Stakes (gr. II) at Keeneland.
An eye-catching move in the fourth and final turn snapped a 10-race winless streak for Quick Casablanca and gave trainer Ron McAnally his fourth San Juan Capistrano Stakes (gr. IIIT) victory April 10 at Santa Anita Park.
Haras Phillipson's homebred Generosidade will look to earn her second straight marathon victory on the Santa Anita Park turf April 10 in the $100,000 San Juan Capistrano Stakes (gr. IIIT).
