Caixa Electronica Remains in NY for Bold Ruler

Caixa Electronica wins 2012 True North.

Caixa Eletronica, who at age 7 earned a career-high 107 Beyer Speed Figure when finishing second in the Grade 1 Vosburgh Invitational last time out, comes back next Saturday in the Grade 3, $150,000 Bold Ruler Handicap, a race in which he finished third last year.

“Seven furlongs is not a problem for him,” said Whit Beckman, assistant to trainer Todd Pletcher, of the Repole Stable color-bearer, who has earned more than $1 million this year. “He ran a very credible race last time out in the Vosburgh. It set up well for him. He’s one of those horses who is so versatile, no matter what distance, he seems to show up every time.”

The Pletcher barn will have two representatives in the other Grade 3 event on Saturday, the $150,000 Turnback the Alarm at 1 1/16 miles. Maristar, most recently fourth in the Grade 1 Beldame, will get some class relief while R Gypsy Gold returns after a brief freshening following her sixth-place finish in the Grade 1 Personal Ensign Invitational Handicap.

“Maristar didn’t run a bad race last time out; she was just a little overmatched,” said Beckman of the 5-year-old Giant’s Causeway mare. “Hopefully, this will be a better spot for her. She’s doing well, so we’ll see what happens.”

R Gypsy Gold, who won the Endear overnight stakes at the Turnback the Alarm distance on July 4, was third in the Grade 2 Molly Pitcher prior to finishing 18 ½ lengths behind winner Love and Pride in the Personal Ensign.

“Like Maristar, that was probably a little bit out of her league,” said Beckman of R Gypsy Gold, who is owned by E Paul Robsham Racing Stables. “She’s doing really, really well right now, and 1 1/16 miles should suit her just fine.”
