BULLET TRAIN, 1/2 TO MISS TEMPLE CITY SCORES MSW WIN AT TAMPA
From BloodHorse.com – “Five Each Way, a half sister to group/grade 1 winner Miss Temple City, scored her maiden victory Jan. 1 in a maiden special weight at Tampa Bay Downs for trainer Graham Motion.
Going a mile on firm turf, Shack’s Legacy set a moderate pace while the eventual winner tucked in mid-pack behind horses. Rounding the final turn, the once spread-out field bunched together and with a furlong to go, Five Each Way was able to accelerate away to win by 1 1/2 lengths in just her second start.
The daughter of Bullet Train finished seventh in her Nov. 18 debut at Laurel Park. At the time Motion stated it was not where he originally intended to start the then 2-year-old filly.
“We just missed Saratoga and (hadn’t) been able to get her in since,” he said. “We decided to wait for Belmont and we just (weren’t) able to get her in with the weather. She’s been entered several times, but really she was either on the also-eligibles or the race came off the grass, or any of those things.”
Owned by Allen Rosenblum and The Club Racing, and bred by Bobfeld Bloodstock and Aaron Jutte out of the Artax mare Glittering Tax, Five Each Way is from the first crop of group 3 winner Bullet Train, half brother to European Horse of the Year Frankel.”
