After nearly a nine month layoff Bench Points is entered in a $100,000 optional allowance race to be run May 24th at Hollywood Park. Four of the horses in the field have won stakes races with two horses being past graded stakes winners - Bench Points being one of them. Including Bench Points four of the horses are near or well over the $300,000 lifetime earnings mark. The field has 29 career wins between them.
Be sure to follow Bench Points on Facebook. Nice collection of pictures and stories.
Bench Points has a speed over stamina pedigree. His sire, a son of the great Alydar, was successful at the Grade 2 level going 1 1/8 miles. His offspring are sprinter/miler types, but two of his progeny (Brother Derek and A to the Z) won at 1 1/8 miles. Bench Points damsire was a tough gray horse who fought with Silver Charm through much of his career. Freehouse was a multiple Grade 1 stakes winner at 1 ¼ miles. Unfortunately, he died early in his stud career (2004) and sired only two stakes winners. His daughters are just starting to produce foals.
I think this guy is going to be a good one! I love his pedigree with Free House as his BMS. He's undefeated and just beat Da Ruler who beat the up and coming Albergatti. I'm very eager to see how he does in the San Felipe next weekend. Watch out for this guy!
Watch out for this underrated horse! He's got some stretch run kick! One of my longshots for the derby!
  • arazi · Bench Points ran great first out this year. I'm very interested to see how he can handle two turns. Can he be like Caracortado, and move successfully from Cal breds to graded stakes winner? · 1286 days ago
Watch out for this horse!!! I've been doing some research on this one and he's got some stride in the home stretch.He's kinda like zenyatta and likes the back but this horse hauls down the stretch!! Does anybody know the beyer figure on this one?

Bench Points remains unbeaten and gained his fourth victory Friday when rallying to win Santa Anita’s $64,960 The Gum Purse by 1 ¼ lengths over 3-10 favorite Da Ruler in the six-furlong event for 3-year-olds which was run in 1:08.22. Bench Points has rallied from last to first in each of his four winning starts.

what is bench points status now?
Still undefeated 3x3. All went wrong in second stakes win and got up comfortably without using the whip. Clipped heals, lost a shoe, 7 wide and didn’t switch leads. Bejarano - "Through the lane he wouldn't change leads and I knew something wasn't quite right. But I had so much horse under me I just let him go on and do what he was doing. I didn't push on him or hit him; I just let him run. After the race we saw he'd lost a left front shoe. He was running relaxed and I was real comfortable in the first part. Then the last part his talent took over. He's just a nice horse."
Very Professional - Show me a 2 year old that can rate and I will show you a 2 year old with a bright future. Check him out in the Del Mar Futurity.
