HYDRO POWER THUNDERS HOME to victory in Saturday’s $100,000 Springfield Stakes. The 3-year-old colt was prepared in Camden by Donna Freyer’s Custom Care Equine.


Peachtree Stable’s Plum Pretty added to her black type resume running second to Zazu, by a length and a half, in Saturday’s $150,000 Hollywood Oaks (Gr. 2.)

Peachtree Stable is owned by Camden resident John Fort.

Prepared in Camden at Kip Elser’s Kirkwood Stables, Plum Pretty was the morning line favorite in the field of four fillies. Ridden by Martin Garcia, the Kentucky Oaks winner took the lead at the top of the stretch and led Zazu by a half-length.

Zazu took the lead in deep stretch, with Plum Pretty battling back to pull alongside her, but was unable to come away with her third straight victory.

The finish was worth $30,000 to Plum Pretty’s connections. The Pennsylvania-bred has now earned $791,200 from six starts in which she has three wins to go along with a pair of seconds and two thirds.

CCE horses have strong showings:

A 5-year-old Proud Citizen - Thorette, by Affirmed gelding, Fiddlers Patriot ran a 1:09 for the six-furlong race on the turf with John Velazquez in the saddle for trainer George Weaver.

In 10 lifetime starts, the New York-bred has five wins and three seconds for $201,045 in earnings.

One day earlier, the CCE-developed, Richard F Rudolph homebred Hydro Power won the $100,000 Springfield Stakes at Arlington Park. Brian Hernandez was given the leg up by trainer Jossph Broussard.

The 3-year-old Aptitude - Deposit Express, by Deposit Ticket colt wired the 11-horse field. The winning time for the one mile run was 1:38.56.

The win was the third in 13 career starts for Hydro Power, which has three seconds and a third which has brought in $130,997.
