Souper Speedy Placed First in Jaipur

Belmont Park

In the $150,000 Jaipur, favored Souper Speedy was promoted to victory in the seven-furlong sprint, which was contested on the main track after being transferred from the Widener turf course.

 

One of three main-track-only starters in the field, Souper Speedy was kept in the clear by jockey Jose Lezcano as he raced in fourth on the backstretch. After advancing into third nearing the half-mile pole and second by the five-sixteenths, Souper Speedy set his sights on his stablemate, pacesetter Big Screen.

 

Souper Speedy steadily drew closer to Big Screen, who drifted outward. After the tandem brushed in the waning strides, Big Screen hit the wire a head in front of Souper Speedy.

 

The stewards called for an inquiry and disqualified Big Screen, placing him second and awarding the victory to Souper Speedy, who is trained by Tom Albertrani for Live Oak Plantation.

 

“Both horses were actually in a good spot if the races came off the turf,” said trainer Albertrani. For me, I couldn’t separate either one of them before the race. I knew both of them were going to be very, very tough together. I was actually hoping for a dead heat in the final strides. Unfortunately, [Big Screen] got taken down. I had one happy owner for a couple of minutes, and then vice versa. They both ran well.”

 

Souper Speedy, a homebred son of Indian Charlie and a half-brother to Grade 1 winner Brilliant Speed, returned $5.10 for a $2 win wager. The final time for seven furlongs was 1:22.09.

 

With the victory, Souper Speedy’s record stands at 3-2-1 in seven starts. The $90,000 winner’s share of the Jaipur purse lifted his earnings to $231,634.

 

Politicallycorrect was third, followed by Reload and Next Question. Mr. Commons, Beau Choix, Night Officer, Spring to the Sky, Summer Breezing, Artest, and Joes Blazing Aaron were scratched.
