Erin's Golden Star smashing in debut

August 13, 2007 · By · Share

Sometimes very few words are necessary after a race, and today is one of them.  Only one word is necessary.  Winner.  Erin's Golden Star, our two-year-old daughter of Cat Thief, broke her maiden impressively at first asking at Philadelphia Park.  Erin broke well and sat just off the flank of a $300,000 John Servis horse early.  She pressed that filly into the turn, put her away in the turn, and drew off to win by nearly three-lengths.  She covered the five furlongs in a solid 58.2.

Trainer Lupe Preciado said, "This filly had outworked anything I put her against in the morning, and we hadn't really ask her.  I hoped she'd run well otherwise I don't know what that would have said about all my other horses.  This filly still has room to improve.  She's still got a little bit of a belly, but you could see she's a beautiful filly.  She's starting to look like a racehorse.  She shied away from the kid's stick in the stretch, so she's still learning.  We'll take it one step at a time, but hopefully we'll have some fun with her."

Jockey David Cohen said, "I didn't have to do much.  I hit her one time to get her focused.  She didn't much like it, but other than that I was just a passenger."

Erin's Golden Star earned $21,000 for her debut win. She was purchased from the OBS April sale for $45,000.  We will look to run her against winners for the first time in September and plan to keep all our options open for her next race.
