Juvenile Spotlight 12/16/12


Dr Figawi (12/6): Commencing his career with a six-furlong maiden special weight for New York-breds at Aqueduct, Dr Figawi set a quick pace before drawing off to score by an impressive 11 lengths. By Stormy Atlantic and out of a black-type-winning mare, Dr Figawi is a half-brother to the black-type winners Dance Gal Dance and Dr Disco, as well as the black-type-placed runners Dr Rico and Judge Margaret.

Flashback (12/8):
Upon debut, this colt stalked the pace of a seven-furlong maiden special weight at Hollywood Park before going wide to take the lead midstretch, drawing clear to a 3 ½-length victory. Sired by the prosperous Tapit, Flashback is a full brother to the grade one-winning Zazu, as well as a half-brother to the black-type-winning Corinthian’s Jewel and the group stakes-placed Art Princess.

Asiya (12/9):
A homebred for Shadwell Stable, Asiya finished third in her career debut prior winning by an astounding 11 lengths in her second start, which came at Aqueduct. Sired by a grade one-winning son of Awesome Again in Daaher, Asiya is out of the black-type-placed Elusive Quality mare Khalila, thus making her a direct descendant of the Hall of Fame racehorse and Reine de Course mare Real Delight, who descends from multiple Reine de Course mares.

Clawback (12/12):
A colt that played the role of runner-up in his initial two starts, Clawback set the pace in a six-furlong maiden special weight at Aqueduct in his third race, drawing off to win by 3 lengths. A son of the graded stakes-winning and -producing Put It Back, Clawback has the advantage of having Dixieland Band as his broodmare sire, therefore providing him with the same damsire as the Kentucky Derby (GI) victors Monarchos and Street Sense, as well as the additional grade one winners Diamondrella and Southern Image.

Hear the Ghost (12/15):
A first-time starter in an eleven-horse field that featured only one horse with experience, Heart the Ghost debuted at Hollywood Park, stalking the rapid pace of the six-furlong maiden special weight before kicking clear to a 3 ¼-length triumph. Sired by a Hall of Fame son of Awesome Again in Ghostzapper, Hear the Ghost is a half-brother to the grade one-winning Mani Bhavan, as well as the black-type-placed Dattt Echo.
