In Summation would not be denied, as he held off Greg’s Gold by a nose to win the Bing Crosby Handicap (gr. I) at Del Mar July 29.
Christophe Clement trains the 4-year-old Put It Back colt for Thomas Moore’s Waterford Stable. It was In Summation’s first attempt at grade I company and his first race over an artificial surface, neither of which seemed to bother him. He came into the race off a win in the June 23 Sneakbox Stakes, which was his first victory since taking the Florida Stallion/Affirmed Stakes in September 2005 for trainer Frank Gomez. In Summation was moved to Clement’s barn in the middle of last year.
As a juvenile, In Summation was purchased by Mike Maniscalco for $130,000 at the 2005 Ocala Breeders’ Sales Co.’s March 2-year-olds in training sale from Hartley/De Renzo Thoroughbreds, agent. The colt originally sold to Hartley/De Renzo Thoroughbreds for $80,000 at the 2004 OBS August yearling sale, where he was consigned by his breeder, Arthur I. Appleton’s Bridlewood Farm.
In Summation was bred in Florida out of the winning Dayjur mare Fiesta Baby, who raced as a homebred for Appleton. Appleton purchased her dam, the grade I-winning Alleged mare Fiesta Gal, for $1.5 million at the 1989 Keeneland November mixed sale from Eugene Klein. Fiesta Gal was offered in foal to Alydar.
Fiesta Gal won the Coaching Club American Oaks and Mother Goose Stakes (both gr. I) and finished second or third in three other grade I contests while racing for Klein. Out of the winning Noble Commander mare Proud Pattie, Fiesta Gal is a full sister to stakes winner Ostensible, who was group I-placed.
Fiesta Baby is Fiesta Gal’s second daughter to produce a grade/group I winner. Her half-sister, Fiesta Singer (by The Minstrel), is the dam of Fiesta Napkin (by Wild Event), who won the 2005 Clasico Ano Neuvo (PR-I) and finished second in four other group I races.
Fiesta Baby is also the dam of stakes winner Dakota Duke (by Stormy Atlantic). Her last foal is a 3-year-old Halo’s Image filly named Jen’s Halo, and she is in foal to Put It Back.
Put It Back is the sire of nine stakes winners including additional 2007 added-money winners Smokey Stover (gr. II), Nitido (Brz-I), Ricoco (Brz-III), Black Bar Spin (Jpn-III), Pirate Saint, and Road to Success (in Uruguay). The 9-year-old son of Honour and Glory stood the 2007 season at Bridlewood Farm, near Ocala, Fla., for a fee of $5,000.—A.H.D.
