Calder: So Great Going Places

Trainer Marty Wolfson appears to have a new star on the rise in his powerful stable at Calder Casino & Race Course as he sends out Paul Pompa, Jr.’s 3-year-old filly So Great as the horse to beat in Friday’s ‘non-winners of two other than’ optional/allowance feature going six furlongs with leading jockey Luis Saez aboard.

 

A Florida-bred chestnut by Greatness, So Great has made all three of her starts at Calder, beginning with a runner-up debut on July 22 for previous connections and was sold privately thereafter and joined the Wolfson barn. So Great has won both of her starts since then, breaking her maiden by 8 ¾ lengths on Aug. 14 and capturing an ‘a other than’ allowance test by 2 ½ lengths last out on Sept. 11.

 

Wolfson also has his wife Karla’s 7-year-old mare Wyatt’s Women entered in the field of seven fillies and mares drawn for Friday’s race with jockey Jose A. Garcia named to ride. The daughter of Eltish is entered for the $25,000 claiming tag option as she has won eight races from 57 career starts with 13 seconds and eight thirds, most recently finishing second in a similar race here on Sept. 8.

 

Completing the field for Friday’s feature are Matthews Stable’s Simple Words, Orlando Bocachica; Dominick Auricchio’s Capitalism At Risk, Juan Leyva; A and V Investments’ Snow Trial, Ameth Gonzalez; Erika Hogg’s Lil Miss G, Jose Alvarez; and Blue Top Holding Stable’s Verse Choir, Fernando Jara.
