Chamberlain Bridge Begins Year in Houston

Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (gr. IIT) winner Chamberlain Bridge will make his season debut in the $75,000 Rail Splitter Stakes Feb. 12 at Sam Houston Race Park.

A winner of 16 races in 31 starts and earnings of more than $1.5 million, 7-year-old Chamberlain Bridge will ship in from Fair Grounds for trainer Bret Calhoun, a Texas native. Owned by Carl Moore Management, the 7-year-old gelded son of War Chant is a five-furlong turf specialist, winning eight times at the Rail Splitter distance.

Last year he won three consecutive stakes in Illinois and Pennsylvania before taking the $1 million BC Turf Sprint at Churchill Downs. With a perfectly timed ride by Jamie Theriot, Chamberlain Bridge advanced from ninth place and powered past his 13 rivals for his biggest win. It was the first Breeders' Cup victory for Moore, Calhoun, and Theriot.

Calhoun and Moore had been searching for a prep race for Chamberlain Bridge, who will ship to the United Arab Emirates for the Dubai World Cup (UAE-I) program at Meydan Racecourse March 26.
