Calimonco Tries to Rebound in Citation

Larry Benavidez, assistant to trainer John Sadler, hopes to dismiss the last outing by Calimonco, entered in the $250,000 Citation Handicap at 1 1/16 miles on turf Saturday.

 

“We’re at a loss to explain his last race; it was a big disappointment,” said Benavidez Wednesday in reference to a seventh-place finish, beaten by 16 lengths, in the Oak Tree Mile on October 8.

 

Calimonco looked like a horse on the stakes rise after his previous two starts: a victory in the Wickerr Stakes and a game third-place finish in the Del Mar Mile, both on the Del Mar turf.

 

Calimonco, a royally-bred 5-year-old horse by Storm Cat out of the Kris S. mare Sweet Life, is a full brother to Breeders’ Cup winners Sweet Catomine and Life Is Sweet.

 

A homebred owned by Pam and Marty Wygod, Calimonco drew the rail in a field of nine and will be ridden for the first time by Mike Smith in the Citation. Oak Tree Mile winner Jeranimo, the probable favorite, drew post two with Garrett Gomez under high weight of 122 pounds.
