Awesome Gem Relaxing

Trainer Craig Dollase is still enjoying the afterglow of winning the Hollywood Gold Cup with his old warrior Awesome Gem. And, according to Dollase, the 7-year-old is enjoying some relaxing time.

 

The trainer has no schedule for when Awesome Gem will go back to the racetrack. "We've got seven weeks between races [in reference to a start in the Pacific Classic], so we're just taking it easy with him right now."
 
A smiling Dollase is confident that the late-running gelded son of Awesome Again will be fit and ready to run in Del Mar's signature race for owner West Point Thoroughbreds.

 

A start in the Grade I, $1-million Pacific Classic would be a fourth straight for Awesome Gem, with his best finish being second in 2007, beaten a half-length by Student Council in his first attempt.
