Hall of Fame trainer Ron McAnally said that Suggestive Boy
, impressive winner of Wednesday’s Wickerr Stakes, not only came out of the assignment well but was “fightin’ for more” on Thursday morning.
“He ran a big race and he looks like he could be an extraordinary horse,” McAnally said. “It’s the horse that makes everybody look good, the owner, the trainer, the jockey.“
Four-year-old Suggestive Boy, a three-quarter length winner in the one-mile Wickerr with a late burst between horses under Joe Talamo, is one of two Argentine-bred newcomers to McAnally’s barn owned by the Pozo de Luna, Inc. stable of Mexican businessman Jose Cerillo. The other, six-year-old Interaction, was runner-up to Acclamation in last Saturday’s Eddie Read Stakes.
“We’ll try to figure out how to keep them separated,” McAnally said. McAnally indicated he fully intends to run both again during the Del Mar meeting and will work both on the Polytrack main surface to determine if there is an option other than turf for one or both.
