Saturday Advance

Sophomore fillies do battle in Sire Stakes



A $6,500 California Sire Stakes for the 3-year-old pacing distaffers featuring Goturnumber and Brigitte Bourdeaux heads the Saturday night action at Cal Expo.

A 12-race card is on tap under the Watch and Wager LLC banner with the first race set for 6:10 p.m.

Goturnumber is coming off a dominating victory in last week’s clash for the 3-year-old pacing fillies, as she made every pole a winning one with James Kennedy and reported to the wire with nine and three-quarter lengths to spare in a sparkling 1:57 1/5 performance.

The dark-hued daughter of Kent’s On Nuke is out of the Ira mare Kb’s Midnight, is owned and was bred by Mark Anderson and Debra McCarthy and hails from the Gordie Graham barn.

The first Sire Stakes for this group was contested two weeks ago and it was Brigitte Bordeaux who was taking bows in a mile that saw Goturnumber making two breaks and being eliminated

. In her score, Brigitte Bordeaux sat a pocket trip early for driver Mooney Svendsen, attacked the leader turning for home and proved best in the drive with a two and a half-length margin at the wire in a 1:59 tour.

The Hi Ho Silverheel’s hombred competes for Wayne and Rod Knittel with Bob Johnson training. Rounding out the cast are Glad to Meet Ya with Luke Plano; Lucky Seven Oflodi, Tony Succarotte; and Rhythm, who will have the services of William Hernandez.
