Hogy wins the Mile at Presque Isle

Favored Hogy captured the $250,000 Presque Isle Mile in Pennsylvania Sept. 8 with a late burst, winning for the third time in his past four starts.

William Stiritz's 4-year-old son of Offlee Wild was victorious for the second time in as many starts for trainer Wayne Catalano, who took over from Scott Becker prior to Hogy's victory in the Troy Stakes, a turf sprint on a yielding course at Saratoga Race Course Aug. 14.

The dark bay gelding was an $80,000 claim last November at Hawthorne Race Course and has won four times with two seconds in seven starts since.

Ridden by Joe Rocco Jr., 5-2 pick Hogy completed the mile in 1:36.72 on the Tapeta main track to win by one length. Super Chunky won a three-horse photo for second, with the Graham Motion-trained stablemates Hoofit and Occasional View next in the field of 11.

Though most of his recent starts have been on turf or dirt, Hogy has won five of 10 starts on synthetic tracks. That includes a 1 1/2-length victory in the one-mile Hanshin Cup Stakes (gr. III) on the Arlington Park Polytrack May 25.

The versatile winner of 11 of 19 lifetime starts was bred in Kentucky by Dr. John E. Little out of the Petionville mare Floy.
