|Golly Bret is Morning Line Odds-On Favorite for Cassels Bruczest Arabian Stakes on Saturday at LSP
(Thursday, October 30, 2008) - Sam A. Vasquez’s Golly
Bret, trained by Elizabeth Brand, has been made the 1-2 morning
line favorite by track odds maker Rick Lee in the Second Running
of the six-furlong, $9,000 added Cassels Bruczest Arabian Stakes
for Texas-accredited Arabian three-year-olds on Saturday, Nov. 1
at Lone Star Park.
With jockey Christopher Conway up, Golly Bret will try to improve
his career record to five wins in six tries and stretch his current
winning streak to four in a row. The three-year-old colt finished
second in his only defeat.
Golly Bret’s chief competition should come from Claudia
and Daniel Spears DC West Wing, who is looking to break his maiden
following second-place finishes in each of his first three career
starts. Trained by Jerenesto Torrez, the three-year-old colt will
have jockey Richard Vasquez in the irons.
Both of the top contenders in the field of six have broken on
the lead in all of their races and should start their duel right
out of the gate.
The field from the rail out, with jockey and morning line odds
listed in parenthesis, consists of: Monarkos CS (Rita Helton, 12-1),
Golly Bret (Christopher Conway, 1-2), DC West Wing (Richard Vasquez,
4-1), WMA Rushing Wind (Cody Wainscott, 20-1), Aarons Destiny (Tad
Leggett, 8-1) and NC Galloping Gus (Santos Carrizales, 8-1).
Scheduled as race four on the 11-race program, the Cassels Bruczest
Arabian Stakes has a scheduled post time of 7:47 p.m.
