One Famous Glass sprinted to a half-length victory in 440-yard Sunday's Bank of America Ajax Challenge Championship at Ajax Downs near Toronto.
Tony Phillips rode One Famous Glass for owners Carol Robertson, Jaime Robertson, and Dr. Charles Hall, and trainer Bryn Robertson. No time was reported to Equibase, as the 7-year-old son of One Famous Glass earned a berth in the October 14, $350,000 Bank of America Challenge Championship (G1) at Prairie Meadows.
One Famous Glass was bred in Texas by Burnett Ranches LLC. The sorrel gelding has won 17 of 35 starts, and the $22,652 winner's share of the $40,948 purse pushed his bankroll to $247,267.
One Famous Glass has won four stakes, all at Ajax Downs, and he ended his 2016 campaign with a nose victory in the 440-yard, $66,847 Alex Picov Memorial Championship Stakes.
Country Man 123, Fast Man Vic, and Famous Bank completed the order of finish.
