ITíS ALL BOOZE CRUZIN IN SATURDAYíS ISOBA STAKE!
Broekhuis Stables Booze Cruzin was hammered down to 2-5 by the betting public and the highly regarded gelding left no doubt as to who was the best in this field as he rolled to a 8 Ĺ length victory in 1:51.3.
Zipped away from post position six by driver Sam Widger, the son of Artís Conquest had no trouble gaining control of the race as he led the field through an opening quarter in 27.3.
Continuing about his business in his usual workmanlike fashion, the Joe Seekman trainee posted middle splits of 56.3 & 1:24.2 while under no pressure at all from his six rivals.
With nothing but open space standing between the gelding and his 10th victory of the season, Booze Cruzin sealed the deal with a wicked 27.1 final quarter, much to the delight of his legion of backers. Well To Do Guru (Casey Leonard) followed the winnerís every move to grab the second place check while Kinnick (Ryan Anderson) rallied to be third, 10 ľ lengths behind the victor.
This seasons Windy City Pace winner now boasts an impressive record of 10-6-2 in 24 starts this season with earnings of $343,177. Bet to the near exclusion of his rivals, Booze Cruzin returned $2.80, $2.20 & $2.10.
Sent right to the front by Brandon Simpson, this Canadian invader put up splits of 27.4, 55.2 & 1:23.3. The eight-year-old son of Jaguar Spur then reeled off an eye catching 26.4 final panel to put his rivals away. Load The Dice (Mike Oosting), who had won the last three FFAs here, was forced to settle for the runner-up role while entrymate Royal Man (Sam Widger) was third.
Overlooked at the windows, Anvilanunoit N returned a very generous $40.80, $6.40 & $5.80.
