COUNTRY DAY COLT WINS BIG IN FAIR GROUNDS ALLOWANCE!

Category : COUNTRY DAY , News , Stallions

From the TDN: “7th-FG, $43,000, Alw (NW1X), Opt. Clm ($50,000), 1-14, 3yo, 6f, 1:10.61, ft.

WILL CALL (c, 3, Country Day–Vote Early {SW, $230,512}, by More Than Ready) was crushed into 1-2 favoritism for his Indiana Grand debut Sept. 28 and ran to the money en route to a 13 1/4-length tally through the slop. A well-bet fourth to Blame Will (Blame) in a Nov. 26 Churchill allowance, the Klein homebred was the 17-10 second choice to favored St. Louie Guy (Kantharos), who was entered for the claiming tag. Always prominent, Will Call raced in the two path on the turn, challenged for the lead two furlongs from home and was never in danger from there, scoring by 2 1/4 lengths. St. Louie Guy completed the exacta and had no takers. Divine Kaleb (Caleb’s Posse), recently third, placed second, in the Sugar Bowl S., went wrong mid-race, dropped C. J. McMahon and was subsequently euthanized. The Kleins campaigned Country Day (by Speightstown) to a trio of black-type wins, including this track’s Colonel Power S., and a runner-up effort in the GII Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint. In addition to her stakes win, Vote Early was runner-up in the Pan Zareta S. at this venue. Dam of the 2-year old colt Call Me (Majestic Warrior), Vote Early produced a full sister to Will Call last year and is due to Country Day this winter. Lifetime Record: 3-2-0-0, $48,000.
