Collerosa finishes well in his first stakes race
 
In only his third start Collerosa went on to have a first grab at the stars. The $250,000 "Cup & Saucer Stakes", for 2-year-old Canadian breds is a mile and one sixteenth on the turf, the first real stamina test for the youngsters. We knew the distance would not be a problem for the bay Tomahawk gelding. Unfortunately it rained on race day and the turf track was noted as "yielding". Under jockey Emma-Jayne Wilson, the pair was trailing the field into the stretch, made a big move and finished very well but could not catch the first two horses. If he would not have been that far back he would have certainly had a good shot for second place - the winner Utterly Cool was unbeatable that day. Nevertheless this effort showed us how classy the little boy is, if he further progresses he will be considered for next years classic trail. According to Collerosas owner, Frank Romano, the horse came out of the race fine and might run once more this year. We will keep you posted. The 3rd place paid $27,000 making the total earnings in 3 starts $47,000, not bad for a maiden. And we are happy to have our first "Black type".
