Ghostzapper's Zestful Cleans Up In Los Al Special

A stretch to 1 ¼ miles proved no problem for Zestful as he dominated four opponents in the $100,000 Los Alamitos Special Sunday.

A 4-year-old Ghostzapper gelding changed hands at last year's Fasig-Tipton Horses of Racing Age auction. He's now won his sixth race in a row and for the seventh time in 10 appearances in 2019.

“He's so cool,'' said Talamo, who also won the inaugural Los Alamitos Special with the Bob Baffert-trained Dabster a year ago. “He'll do whatever you want. I kept him two or three paths off the rail and gave him a breather on the far turn. He just took off at the quarter pole.''

The victory was the second for the Zestful in the colors of the partnership that includes Danny Haramoto, Sheldon Kawahara, Steven Sobel and Mark Glatt.



The chestnut is Ghostzapper's third stakes winner out of a mare by Smoke Glacken from just 13 starters. Stronach Stables homebred champion Hunters Bay is among the others.

Able to make the early lead, Zestful surrendered the advantage when 11-1 shot Soul Beam made an inside move to take over, but, after being given a breather by jockey Joe Talamo, the 3-2 second choice Sunday kicked away in the stretch to score by six lengths.
The win was the ninth in 24 lifetime starts for Zestful and the $60,000 payday pushed his bankroll to $209,941.

Ghostzapper's Lift Up Earns 2nd Straight Stakes Trophy

Lift Up, finishing strongly under rider Patrick Husbands, was along in time to score by a neck over She’s the Berries as the 9-5 favorite in Sunday’s $100,000 Belle Mahone Stakes at Woodbine Racetrack.

Maryland-based trainer Michael Dickinson was on hand to send out Lift Up for the Belle Mahone, a 1 1/16 mile race for fillies and mares on the Tapeta which attracted a field of six.

Lift Up, a five-year-old Augustin Stable homebred by Ghostzapper, was recording her third career stakes win after taking the Miss Liberty over 1 1/16 miles of grass at Monmouth last June and the mile and 70 yard West Virginia President’s Cup on the Mountaineer Park turf course last time out.

“We think she’s going to be better going longer,” said Dickinson, who was sending out his second stakes winner of the meeting after watching Pamina win the Ontario Matron in July. “Now that we’ve got her to relax, she’ll go as long as we want. She’s bred to go a mile and a half.”



“I got a nice trip,” said Patrick Husbands, who was recording his meet-leading 12th stakes win and his third career score in the Belle Mahone following successes with Stars to Shine in 2011 and Uchenna in 2016.

“She was so relaxed, throughout the whole backside, and that was the key riding her today. Michael says she’s very aggressive. I galloped her yesterday morning, and she was pretty aggressive.”

Lift Up, breaking from the inside post, was eased back and moved off the rail heading down the backstretch as Lunar Garden led through opening fractions of :24.24 and :49.45.

Ladies Night was chasing in second as the others bunched up heading into the far turn, and the early leaders remained in place as the six furlongs went by in 1:13.51.

Lift Up was moving on the far outside at that point and looked a major danger. She’s the Berries, meanwhile, had saved ground throughout and was hitting her stride on the inside as they turned for home.

The outcome was in doubt until the final yards but Lift Up was good enough for the fractional victory over the 2-1 second choice in a final time of 1:43.57.
