DOUBLE ZERO SEVEN HOLDS ON FOR GILDED TIME VICTORY
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (August 16, 2001) -- Larry F. Telle's Double Zero Seven was unruly before the start of the $60,625 Gilded Time Stakes but was all business once the gates opened. The son of Beau Genius took the lead at mid-stretch and was all out to hold off the late rally of favored Pass Rush to win the six-furlong dash for 2-year-olds by a neck.
Double Zero Seven was so unruly before the start that he had to be loaded into the gate without a rider and jockey Lonnie Meche climbed aboard the colt inside the gate. He sat third in the four-horse field, overtook pacesetter Super Striker inside the eighth pole and held on for the score in 1:12.58 over a track listed as good.
The Angel Montano Sr.-trained runner earned $37,500 for the win, his third straight, to boost his bankroll to $87,300 in just six trips to the post.
"He's a little horse but he has a lot of potential," said Meche. "He really puts it together every time he goes out there."
Pass Rush stumbled badly leaving the gate and had difficulty getting hold of the track but rallied well inside the final sixteenth and almost got the winner. Super Striker faded to third after setting the pace for five furlongs. Purple Pleasure completed the order of finish.
Double Zero Seven paid $7.80 and $2.40. Pass Rush paid $2.10. There was no show wagering on the race.
