The 5-year-old gelding dominates in his Remington Park debut.
April 1, 2016
Zoomin Effortlessly, a 5-year-old Zoomin For Bux gelding racing for Telesforo Perrett of Houston, romped to a 2 1/2-length victory in Saturday's 400-yard, $100,000 Leo Stakes (G1) at Remington Park.
Ridden by Santos Carrizales for trainer R.L. "Rick" Robinson and making his first-ever start in Oklahoma, Zoomin Effortlessly stopped the timer in :19.420 and extended his win streak to seven races, six against stakes company. The $59,730 winner's share of the purse pushed the gelding's earnings to $340,131, of which $216,730 has been banked this season.
Zoomin Effortlessly was making his first start since January 3, when he won the 400-yard, $350,000 Championship at Sunland Park (G1) in New Mexico.
"He's kind of funny in the gates; sometimes he breaks great and sometimes he hesitates a bit," said Carrizales. "By the second jump he goes all out. He can go 440 (yards) easily."
Zoomin Effortlessly was bred in Texas by Tommy R. Charbula. The gelding has won 13 of his 20 outs, and the Leo Stakes marked his third career Grade 1 victory.
Dashin Brown Streak, last year's horse of the meet at Remington, finished second and was followed by The Big Time, Bodacious Eagle, Big Dashing Perry, Rockin Disco, Rock You, Cobalt Creek, and Play Harder.
