Indy Weekend broke his maiden in smashing style winning the MSW going seven furlongs on May 20th at <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Hollywood Park. He had a perfect stalking trip under Jockey Tyler Baze.  Indy got a beautiful break and settled in nicely behind the leaders.  Mid way through the turn one of the pace setters faded back and coming out of the turn Indy made his move pulling past the leader to win in impressive fashion.

Trainer Craig Dollase said, "This was absolutely the kind of effort we all knew this colt had in him.  This was a great field.  Our horse has Beyers in the 90s, and we are almost 6/1.  This wasn't like a race with only one or two horses.  It was a very evenly matched field of thirteen good horses." "We added blinkers for the race, and I think that helped him.  He stayed aggressive from start to finish and showed a real killer instinct today.  They were saying pretty good things about the runner-up but we were just drawing away from him in the stretch."

"I was a little concerned coming off the layoff that seven furlongs might be tough for him, but he finished up strongly.  They weren't going to beat us if we went around again.  They went in real racehorse time.  1:21 and change for seven furlongs after getting six in 1:08 and change.  We have bright days ahead of us I think."

Tyler Baze said, "I knew I was on the winner at the three-eighths pole.  My colt got away great and relaxed beautifully under me.  I was able to save some ground, and when the pacesetter hooked up I was able to sit right behind them.  When the one leader backed up, I asked my colt and he accelerated beautifully.  He went right on by the ten horses without hesitating.  He was all business today.  I was just along for the ride."

Indy Weekend earned $27,000 for his effort bringing his career total up to $41,440.
