ARLINGTON PARK

CONSIDERAÇÕES DE BLOOD HORSE DAILY NEWS

Count Ghost Hunter as the latest example of good things that come to those who wait.
In his 46th career start, the 7-year-old Ghostzapper gelding notched his first career graded stakes triumph when he shot through up the inside in the lane to prevail by three-quarters of a length in the $100,000 Arlington Handicap (G3T)at Arlington International RacecourseWatch Video
Having long toiled in the allowance ranks—where he was a consistent top-three runner—Ghost Hunter took his first swing at graded company last November when he finished fourth in the Autumn Stakes (G2) over the all-weather surface at Woodbine. The bay gelding stepped it up a bit with a runner-up effort in the May 13 Hanshin Cup Stakes (G3) at Arlington on synthetuc and came into the 1 3/16-miles Arlington Handicap off a half-length triumph in a salty allowance turf test at Delaware Park | BloodHorse.com Track Profile"> Park June 15 where he bested grade 1 winner Ring Weekend.
The Jamie Ness-trained Ghost Hunter put it all together Saturday, saving ground along the rail in a close-up third as 79-1 shot Crewmanhad fellow longshot Oak Brook at his hip through fractions of :23.71 and :48.61. While Oak Brook bravely outran his 45-1 odds and was still holding tough in midstretch, Ghost Hunter came up the rail under Edwin Gonzalez on his way to covering the distance in 1:55.86 over a firm turf.
"He's very versatile. His best surface is probably Polytrack, and he's a horse who tends to find trouble, but today we found the rail and got through and got the 'W'," Ness said.
Sent off at 12-1 odds, Ghost Hunter bested his seven rivals to earn his 18th career win and boost his earnings to  $633,523 for owners Triple K Stables. Oak Brook edged out Kasaqui for the place. Manitoulinfinished fourth.
Ghost Hunter was purchased by Triple K Stables for $30,000 out of the 2012 June Ocala Breeders' Sales Co. 2-year-olds and horses of racing age sale. He is out of the stakes-winning Kafwain   mare Hartfelt.

Lothenbach Stables’ Sonic Boom, unbothered by early pace pressure, opened a clear lead in the backstretch and held firm for a dominant 1 3/4-length win in the $100,000 American Derby (G3T) July 8 at Arlington International RacecourseWatch Video
Ridden by jockey Julien Leparoux for trainer Ian Wilkes, Sonic Boom was pressed immediately out of the gate by Ken and Sarah Ramsey’s Joe Sharp-trained Hembree, who prompted the winner through early splits of :23.43 and :48.05 before he settled in for a tracking run under Jose Valdivia Jr. Sonic Boom then established an unchallenged lead inthe backstretch, caught a breather through three-quarters in 1:13.65 and a mile in 1:38.35, and kicked clear to finish the 1 1/8-mile trip in 1:49.90.
"On the backside I felt very comfortable," Leparoux said. "My horse relaxed for me and was doing it very easy. When I asked him at the quarter pole, he really kicked on nice."
Mike Maker trainee Gorgeous Kitten—another Ramsey runner—passed Hembtree in the stretch to get second under jockey Robby Albarado. It was another 2 1/4 lengths back to Captain Jack Racing Stable’s Anthony Granitz-trained My Bariley under Santo Sanjur.
"This was a step forward for him today," Wilkes said. "I think with Julien, we figured out how to ride him and let him do his thing."
Sonic Boom, a son of More Than Ready  , won for the fourth time in nine starts and earned $58,800 to boost his career bankroll to $245,800. He returned $3.20, $2.20 and $2.10 as the post-time favorite. Gorgeous Kitten returned $2.60 and $2.60. My Bariley paid $5.60.

Ken and Sarah Ramsey's Keystoneforvictory passed The Pizza Man late and went on to post a mild upset in the $100,000 Stars and Stripes Stakes (G3T) at Arlington International Racecourse July 8. Watch Video
Ridden by Julien Leparoux for trainer Mike Maker, the 4-year-old colt by Shakespeare was settled into mid-pack as Mongol G, who bumped with Belomorat the outset, took the early lead. It wasn't long before Belomor assumed command, opening up an eight-length advantage over the rest of the field in the 1 1/2-mile turf test after getting a mile in 1:38.93 and still lead by five lengths with 1 1/4 miles completed.
The Pizza Man, the 2014 and '15 Stars and Stripes winner who also took the 2015 Arlington Million XXXIV Stakes (G1T), was well rated off the pace, and took a brief lead after going three wide entering the stretch. Keystoneforvictory, meanwhile, was set down for a sustained bid, passing the 8-year-old gelding en route to a 1 1/2-length triumph. The final time was 2:29.89 for Keystoneforvictory, who paid $5.80 to win as the second choice in the nine-horse field. Applicator finished third, a head behind The Pizza Man.
"It set up perfect for us," winning jockey Leparoux said. "We had a perfect race."
The Stars and Stripes was the eighth win in 15 starts for Keystoneforvictory, who has earned $307,590. The colt previously won last year's Forty Niner Stakes and Claiming Crown Emerald Stakes, both at Gulfstream Park.
"He's a pretty easy horse to train," Maker said. "He's a win machine."
Florent Geroux said he felt like The Pizza Man was going to win as the field entered the stretch.
"He felt good, (and) turning for home I thought I was going to get the win. But the one horse just ran him down the last eighth of a mile. He ran great, I think he's improved on his last race and I think he's moving in the right direction. He's a little bit older now and it might take him a bit longer to get to his top form."
Produced from Free Fee Lady, a multiple stakes-winning daughter of Victory Gallop, Keystoneforvictory was bred in Kentucky by Dell Ridge Farm and was purchased by his owners for $25,000 from St George Sales at the 2014 Keeneland September yearling sale.
