Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners’ two-year-old Street Boss filly, Undisputed, put on a magnificent show earning her diploma first time out at Los Alamitos in California on Saturday, July 4. Showing her inexperience, Undisputed hopped out of the gate before quickly regaining her rhythm under jockey Flavien Prat. Our filly took the lead before veering out in the turn losing her best action allowing others to stay close. While still exhibiting greenness in the stretch, Undisputed was able to regain her smooth action drawing clear to win by a half-length. Her time was the fastest of three maiden special weight races run at the five furlong distance on the card.
Aron Wellman expressed his thoughts following the race. “Undisputed overcame a lot today and the filly she beat was well-regarded, had home-court advantage, was totally cranked for this race and got a perfect trip, and despite being all-out to hang with Undisputed, our filly toyed with her while earning the win and drawing nearly 9 lengths clear of the 3rd place filly, which is hard to do in a 5 furlong race.”
Under the care of Simon Callaghan, Undisputed has been training like a high-quality filly ever since she was purchased at the Ocala Breeders’ Sale March Two-Year-Olds in Training for $450,000.
Assuming all goes well in the coming weeks, Undisputed will point for the Grade 2 $200,000 Sorrento Stakes at Del Mar on August 12.
ETP is now starting to unveil its 2015 class of two-year-olds. We will be well represented across the country as Del Mar and Saratoga begin racing later this month. We also will be represented at Arlington Park outside Chicago. Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners currently has twenty-one two-year-olds on its roster.
This past week we have had success with the older horses also. Matterhorn, a four-year-olds son of Tapit won a $96,000 Allowance race at Belmont Park. Capriana, a three-year-old New York-bred daughter of Street Boss, has now won two in a row at Belmont Park showing a great amount of grit and determination in both starts. Passing Pfast also was a recent winner at Delaware Park.
