Comma to the Top Could Return for Carter

10 December 18: Comma to the Top (no. 10), ridden by Corey Nakatani and trained by Peter Miller, wins the 30th running of the grade 1 CashCall Futurity Stakes for two year olds at Hollywood Park in Inglewood, California. (Bob Mayberger/Eclipse Sportswire)

Trainer Peter Miller said he didn’t expect Gary Barber, Roger Birnbaum, and Kevin Tsujihara’s Comma to the Top to pull out a victory in yesterday’s Grade 3 Tom Fool Handicap after he lost the lead in the stretch, but wasn’t surprised by the 5-year-old gelding’s tenacity.

 

“I thought he was beaten and that he was going to finish third,” said Miller when reached by telephone Saturday. “The horse and [jockey Joel Rosario] are both so strong and so good. I give a lot of credit to Joel for getting him to come back. It was an amazing race from an amazing horse.”

 

The Tom Fool was Comma to the Top’s second start in the span of a week as he had finished third in the Grade 2 San Carlos on February 23 at Santa Anita.

 

“We put ourselves out there and a lot of people were second guessing the decision [to ship Comma to the Top from California to New York for the Tom Fool], but I live with the horse seven days a week and know the horse,” said Miller.

 

The trainer added that Comma to the Top, who departed New York for California early Sunday morning, likely will make his next start within 4-6 weeks and that there’s a “very good chance” it will be the Grade 1, $400,000 Carter Handicap on April 6.

gutsy win from CTP..too bad I had money only on Saturday's Charm in the race. A real heart breaker.
I wonder if he'll lose the blinkers after that duel.
