Romacaca Close to Millionaire Status

Romacaca 1

It has been nearly four years since Frank Calabrese claimed now 7-year-old Romacaca at Gulfstream Park for $25,000 out of her fourth career start, and next Saturday she will be favored to win the $150,000 Sunshine Millions Filly & Mare Turf, a victory that would push her career earnings past the $1 million mark. 

“She’s never been better and hasn’t lost a step,” said trainer Danny Miller, who guided the daughter of Running Stag through most of her 3-year-old season after the claim and got her back in his barn last summer at Arlington Park. “She may even be better with age as she relaxes more in her races than she did when she was younger. We’ve been pointing for this race since we got down here.

“She’s at an age where you would consider breeding her with what she has accomplished, but we haven’t talked about that as yet. Frank (Calabrese) loves to race. She’s very sound and there is no reason she can’t continue to perform at the top level. Naturally, I’d like to keep her in training.”

Romacaca won her first three starts after the claim for Miller, including the Pucker Up Stakes (G3) at Arlington and has been a consistently high-class turf stakes performer turf stakes throughout her career of 16 victories from 32 starts, most recently winning the $100,000 South Beach Stakes here on Dec. 9. Romacaca finished second as the favorite in the Sunshine Millions Filly & Mare Turf last year won by Hooh Why.
