Sunrise Smarty Wins!
Sunrise Smarty broke his maiden in impressive fashion on Wednesday afternoon in a 6 furlong maiden special weight. Our handsome son of Smarty Jones broke alertly and quickly assumed command. Under confident handling by jockey Ramon Dominguez, Sunrise Smarty led through open fractions of 22.57 and 45.31 before drawing away to score by 3 ½ lengths in 1.09:88.
Trainer Mike Hushion said, "I knew he was sitting on a big race and just hoped we had a clean trip. He is a fast horse and I think we are going to have fun with him."@
Ramon Dominguez said, "My horse ran so well. He broke well and relaxed nicely on the lead. He had plenty left when we turned for home."
Sunrise Smarty earned $30,600 for his maiden breaking score. Look for him to run back in November at Aqueduct.
