Amazombie Headed to Churchill Downs

Amazombie , ridden by jockey Mike Smith and trained by Bill Spawr wins the Sentient Jet Breeders' Cup Sprint (G1) at at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky on November 5, 2011.

Adhering to the popular catch phrase “Show me the money” from the 1996 hit film “Jerry Maguire, Bill Spawr will run Breeders’ Cup Sprint champion Amazombie in the $400,000, Grade II Churchill Downs Stakes at seven furlongs on May 5 and not the $125,000 Tiznow Stakes at Hollywood Park on April 28 as originally planned.

 

“I talked to Tom Cruise,” joked Spawr, who owns the 6-year-old California-bred with partner Tom Sanford, “and he said, ‘Show me the money!’ Seriously, Amazombie is doing great, he likes Churchill (where he won the Breeders’ Cup Sprint last Nov. 5) and the money was a major factor.”

 

Amazombie is coming off a victory in the Grade II Potrero Grande Stakes at Santa Anita on April 7. He finished third in the San Carlos Stakes in his 2012 debut on Feb. 25.
