CANCELLIERE SWEET LOU COLTS IMPRESS AT BWTB
 
Baby Race Charts

— Meadowlands Media Department

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ — July 7, 2018 — Breakfast With The Babies (BWTB), sponsored by Fashion Farms, went to post on a perfect, windless Saturday morning under clear skies with temperatures in the 80’s.

Brothers Tom and John Cancelliere had a big day with a couple of sharp looking sons from Sweet Lou’s first crop winning impressively this morning.

The pacing colt portion of the program got started in a big way in race 7 when Admiral Ballsy (Dave Miller) left hard from his outside post and set fast fractions of 28.1, 56.3 and 1:24.4 before giving way late to the pocket sitting Sugar Factory (Corey Callahan) who swept past and paced through the wire handily in 1:52.3. Captain Cash (McCarthy) held nicely to be second and Captain Crunch (Scott Zeron) closed well to be third in the fast mile. Tom Cancelliere trains the winner for his brother John, who gave $65,000 for the Sweet Lou colt from Cam Swifty at Harrisburg. Birnam Wood Farms and Meirs are the breeders.

The Cancelliere brothers and Callahan came right back to win with another Sweet Lou, this one named Love Me Some Lou, in 1:55.4. Callahan sent him out from post 8 right into a two hole, sat chilly behind Waterway’s (B. Miller) pace then zipped by that rival in the 27 last quarter for the win. Captain Trevor (D. Miller) rallied wide to be second. Love Me Some Lou was a $95,000 Lexington yearling, bred by Spring Haven Farm.

The cleverly named Taylor Swiftly opened the day a 1:56.3 winner for trainer / driver Domenico Cecere. She cut the mile, a half in 59, three panels in 1:28.1 then sprinted home in 28.2 untouched to win by four lengths over Susy (Jimmy Takter). The Trixton filly from True Diva is a Lindy Farms homebred.

American Kronos won the second, converting a pocket trip for driver Andy Miller to a 1:59.4 / 29 record in her very first start. Girl With A Past (Andy McCarthy) closed strongly to get up for second. The winner is a Donato Hanover owned by Marvin Katz, Al Libfeld and David Goodrow and was bred in Italy by Allevamento Kronos.

The third race was a throwback special as Chris Ryder set slow fractions with his The Light In Me, arriving at the three quarters station in a leisurely 1:33.4. The result was a 29.2 sprint home where Montevideo (Oskar Florhed) swept by the leader and held safe over Quiksilvr Blue Chip (Lucas Wallin) in 2:03.1. The winner is a Brittany Farms bred EL Titan colt bought at the Harrisburg sale for $70,000 by Howard Taylor and Order By Stable and trained by Ake Svanstedt.

Brady Bunch was a 1:58.1 / 28.2 winner for Marcus Miller in race 4. It was a gate to wire effort for the Muscle Mass colt, not being asked until mid-stretch when he responded by widening to win as he pleased under his own power. Practical Cat (Takter) held second. Brady Bunch, bred by Patty Hogan, was an $82,000 Harrisburg buy for Mike Anderson, Joe Faraldo and Kentuckian Racing Stable. Erv Miler is the trainer.

Pacing fillies came around next and Patty Hogan bred another winner in Entwined (Brett Miller). After stealing slow fractions Entwined spun off a 57.3 final half to get the win over a closing American Love (A. McCarthy). Both are American Ideal fillies trained by Tony Alagna. The winner is owned by the trainer and the breeder who got her for the bargain price of $9,000 at Harrisburg last fall.

Tony sent out the next winner as well in Passion Struck (McCarthy) who took over on the backstretch and coasted home in hand for the 1:56.4 record over Funny Said (Marcus Miller). She is a Western Ideal bred by Steve Stewart and the Shetlers who brought a winning bid of $52,000 from Brad Grant at the Lexington sale.

Major Deception (B. Miller) put on a speed show as the Captaintreacherous colt from Loving Caroline set all the numbers finishing a mile in 1:53.1 mile with a 27 final quarter while holding Rockin Jimmy Brown (M. Miller) at bay. In The Gym, Martha Frank, Robert LeBlanc, Steve Head and Joe Sbrocco gave $130,000 for the Diamond Creek bred Major Deception last fall in Lexington.

Wolfgang, perched at the top of Ken Warkentin’s Road to the Hambletonian, went a conditioning qualifier in 1:53, closing into a 28.2 last quarter to get up under his own power with trainer Jimmy Takter driving. He’s expected to race next in the Stanley Dancer Memorial, which is shaping up to be quite an event on Meadowlands Pace night, July 14.
