Macho Uno's Unmachable Rockets to Second Stakes Victory

08.07.2020 -

Unmachable collared Gold Crusher in the final strides for a half-length victory in the Seattle Slew Stakes for 3-year-old colts and geldings at Emerald Downs for the second stakes victory of his young career.

Ridden by Javier Matias at 120 lbs, Unmachable ran 6 ½ furlongs in 1:15.84 and paid $5.60 as the betting choice. Jack McCartney is the winning trainer for owner Tawnja Elison of Eagle, Idaho.

A Washington-bred by Macho Uno, Unmachable is 2-1-2 in five lifetime starts with earnings of $71,065, including $22,000 for Thursday’s victory. The gelding debuted last September with a victory in the Washington Cup Juvenile, followed by a second in the Gottstein Futurity. He traveled to Phoenix and finished third in a stakes late last year and was third while making his 2020 debut in an allowance test here last month.

Unmachable settled about 10 lengths off the pace as Tig and Vroysky dueled through fractions of :22.14 and :44.52, gathered momentum into the lane and surged in the final furlong to tag Gold Crusher in the shadow of the wire.

Gold Crusher, ridden by Eddie Martinez at 121 lbs, powered past Tig into the lane and appeared home free for the victory, but Unmachable’s late rally was too much to withstand.

Muncey, with Jennifer Whitaker riding, closed ground to finish third, while Wilson to Lockett, Tig, Mosquito Fleet and Vroysky rounded out the order of finish.

Likely next up for Unmachable is the Muckleshoot Derby at 1 1/16 miles is next for 3-year-olds, tentatively scheduled for September 5.
