HIGH FINANCE RUNS SECOND IN MR. PROSPECTOR!!!
Rick Violette said, "What a race, Rafael (Bejarano) had to tap on the brakes several time, and we didn't get that early run we wanted in the stretch. He had no choice but to stay down in there, but the room never opened up. When it did you could see him come running, and he went right through that hole. If we had gotten a little lucky we win the race. If the seven horse comes out at all on the turn we win. Our colt ran a winning race, and he ran very fast. I think if everything breaks well for us we should have a huge year with this colt.
Terry Finley commented, "We have high expectations for High Finance's four year old season and this was a great way to start it out. We are going to have a lot of fun with him in 2007"
High Finance earned $20,000 for his effort bringing his career total up to $139,850. He will be pointed for either the $100,000 Deputy Minister Handicap(G3) on February 3rd at Gulfstream Park or the $300,000 General George Handicap(G2) on February 19th at Laurel Park.
