$100,000 Trapeze Stakes

$100,000 Trapeze Stakes

The Springboard Mile undercard at Remington Park Sunday was led by the companion race for 2-year-old fillies, the Trapeze, also at one mile. Trainer Bret Calhoun enjoyed the outcome as a pair of his 2-year-old fillies finished one-two with Zooming on top and Perfect Fit second.


Perfect Fit set the pace with a quarter-mile in :23.75, a half-mile in :47.28 and three-quarters of a mile in 1:11.82. She then gave up the advantage to her stable mate in the stretch as Zooming moved by to win by one length in 1:38.22 after sitting second behind Perfect Fit until the stretch.


Sweet Opportunity was third, 2-1/4 lengths behind the runner-up. Lovely Maria, the 2-1 wagering favorite, was fourth.


Owned Carl Moore Management of Kennedale, Texas, Zooming was ridden by Lindey Wade. “She was breathing fire in the post parade and I thought we had a really good shot today,” Wade said. “She proved herself.”


Zooming paid $25.20 to win, $10.40 to place and $6.40 to show. Perfect Fit paid $10.80 to place and $6 to show. Sweet Opportunity returned $3.20 to show.


The Trapeze Stakes is the third consecutive win for Zooming, all this season at Remington Park, in her four starts here. Bred in Texas by Charles and David Yochum, Zooming is a filly by After Market from the Bertrando mare Dance Studio. She made $60,000 for her Trapeze score to move her overall money to $94,630.
