Caixa Electronica Might Target Met Mile

Grade 3 Westchester winner Caixa Eletronica came out of the one-mile race in good order, according to Jonathan Thomas, assistant to trainer Todd Pletcher.

 

A 6-year-old son of Arromanches, Caixa Eletronica was claimed by Pletcher for $62,500 on behalf of owner Mike Repole two starts back at Gulfstream Park and quickly recouped most of his purchase price when he upset four others to collect the $60,000 winner’s share of the Westchester purse.

 

Caixa Eletronica was able to sit just off swift early fractions of 22.34 and 44.72 set by Christmas for Liam – trained by Pletcher for the Estate of Edward P. Evans – who was closely tracked by favored Haynesfield. The front runners finished fifth and fourth, respectively, as Caixa Eletronica took command in the stretch to hit the wire three lengths in front.

 

“Both horses came out of it well,” said Thomas of Caixa Eletronica and Christmas for Liam. “We certainly have not lost any faith in Christmas for Liam; he may have gotten used up a little early and we’ll chalk it up to tactical error.”

 

While the Grade 1 Met Mile on May 30th is a potential target for Caixa Eletronica, Thomas said Christmas for Liam’s next start was undecided.

 

Haynesfield, the New York-bred horse of the year in 2010 who was making his season debut in the Westchester for trainer Steve Asmussen and owner Turtle Bird Stable, also emerged from the race in good order, said Toby Sheets, the trainer’s New York assistant.
