Bisono Works Amazombie for Spawr

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.

Bill Spawr had a busy morning Friday. With rain imminent, the 72-year-old trainer worked nearly half his barn, including California-bred Breeders’ Cup Sprint champion Amazombie, who is “50-50” for either the Grade II, $150,000 Potrero Grande Stakes at Santa Anita on April 7 or the Grade III, $200,000 Count Fleet Sprint Stakes at Oaklawn Park on April 14.

 

With jockey Alex Bisono aboard, Amazombie worked five furlongs in 59.60. “It was a very good work,” Spawr said. “He galloped out in 1:12.”

 

Santa Anita’s work tab listed 13 Spawr workers Friday, including two on the training track.


Spawr said he worked 16 of the 30 head in his barn.

 

Bisono, meanwhile, is thrilled with the opportunity to work Amazombie and to ride for a trainer with Spawr’s resume and horsemanship.

 

“He’s very respected,” said Bisono, a 27-year-old native of Central Islip, Long Island. “When people see me working for him, they obviously know that I’m doing a good job.

 

“Business is picking up little by little. I’m working really hard and people are noticing that. They’re starting to give me better opportunities.” “Irish” Brandon O’Bryan is Bisono’s agent.
