Cassidy Pair Headline Sunshine Millions

New York City-born trainer James Cassidy figures to be a force on Saturday in Santa Anita's portion of the ninth annual Sunshine Millions competition when he saddles multiple Grade 1 winners THE USUAL Q. T. (Unusual Heat) and EVENING JEWEL (Northern Afleet) in their respective events.


Conducted in concert with Gulfstream Park, the bicoastal event offers purses of $1.8 million and is comprised of six races exclusively for California- and Florida-breds. The Usual Q. T. will be the leading challenger to Floridian multi-millionaire PRESIOUS PASSION (Royal Anthem) among eight entrants in the $300,000 Sunshine Millions Turf while Evening Jewel heads a cast of nine in the $300,000 Distaff. The $200,000 Sprint, featuring COST OF FREEDOM (Cee's Tizzy), completes the Sunshine Million races at Santa Anita.


The Turf, set for 1 1/8 miles over Santa Anita's Camino Real turf course, has attracted a formidable lineup that includes such notables as Florida-bred JERANIMO (Congaree) and Cal-bred CARACORTADO (Cat Dreams), in addition to Presious Passion and The Usual Q. T.


The Mary Hartmann-trained Presious Passion has amassed $2,679,099 in earnings while racing 49 times, compiling a mark of 14-7-2 along the way. The eight-year-old gelding will be joined in the Turf by Elvis Trujillo, aboard for his last 16 races.
