Pure Sensation Sharp for Clement

Official Saratoga logo
 

A powerful winner of Thursday's $100,000 Quick Call at 5 ½ furlongs on turf, Pure Sensation came back in good order for trainer Christophe Clement and owners Frank and Patricia Generazio.

 

The 3-year-old son of Zensational tracked the pace eagerly along the rail in the Quick Call, but was trapped behind horses as the field turned for home. Jockey Jose Lezcano waited patiently for running room, letting the eventual runner-up Choctaw Chuck go by before swinging outside of that rival and motoring home to prevail by a nose.

 

The Generazios, who bred Pure Sensation, were very pleased with the way their colt emerged from Thursday's race.

 

"We just watched him walk and he looks great," said Frank Generazio. "He looked like he galloped out good yesterday, so we're going to consider the [one-mile, $100,000] Better Talk Now [on August 18]."

 

Pure Sensation is the third generation of Generazio-bred horses, a line that began with the gray colt's third dam Pure Fire.

 

"We bought Pure Fire many years ago at a sale in Ocala," said Patricia Generazio, "and all the offspring have 'pure' something in their name."

 

Another 'pure' could be on the horizon for the Generazios, who bred Pure Sensation's dam, Pure Disco, back to Zensational after being impressed with the emerging stallion.

 

"We liked that [Zensational] was a new stud, and we thought we'd take a shot," said Frank Generazio. "He's such a good looking stallion we wanted to breed back to him, and we got a beautiful filly. Hopefully she can run like her brother."
