Awesome Gem set for Pacific Classic(G1)
Awesome Gem has drawn perfectly in post four for the $1,000,000 Pacific Classic(G1) on August 19th at Del Mar. Awesome Gem enters the Pacific Classic off of an outstanding runner-up effort in the Grade 2 San Diego Handicap in July. Awesome Gem, won the Grade 2 San Fernando Breeders' Cup in January.
A four-year-old son of Awesome Again, Awesome Gem has trained exceptionally well heading into the Classic, and he looks well setup for a top effort in the Classic.
Trainer Craig Dollase said, "This horse looks like a true mile and a quarter horse. We've been pointing for this race for a long time. We didn't want to get stuck on the far outside, so we drew a good post. We'll just have to see if we're good enough."
The Pacific Classic will air between 7-8pm EDT on ESPN2.
