Total Bull overcame an awkward start and an unforeseen trip to capture
his stakes debut in the $100,000 Fifth Season Stakes for older horses
on Thursday at Oaklawn Park.
Under jockey Calvin Borel, Total Bull ($4) held off the late
run of Flying Private to win by a diminishing half-length in 1:44.00
for 1 1/16 miles on the fast main track. Cryptolight was another 3 3/4
lengths back in third.
