Boys in the Mojo Trio at Lone Star Park

June 18, 2016 

The Boys in the Mojo Trio, Sound of Fury (by Broken Vow out of La Concerto) and Left Coast Dreams (by Haynesfield out of LA Dreamin), ran in a 5 furlong maiden special sprint race at Lone Star Park (LS) on Saturday, June 18.  This was their  2nd lifetime start.

“Left Coast Dreams demontrated an impressive closing kick,” said Fred Taylor, Mojo’s CEM.  “While Sound of Fury is still hasn't figured out it's time to be a racehorse.”    

Both of our runners came out of the gate clean and held their ground; but they were 5 lengths off the pace matching each other’s strides down the backstretch.

Going into the far turn, Left Coast Dreams was in 6th and began his run while Sound of Fury lost ground, but was holding 7th.  At the top of the stretch, with urging from the rider, Left Coast Dreams dug in and quickened his stride, whereas Sound of Fury didn’t go on with it.

At the eight pole, Left Coast Dreams started picking off horses with a clear run four wide down the center of the track.  By the 16 pole, Left Coast Dreams only had 2 horses to beat.  Though the horse that won had gained a comfortable lead, Left Coast Dreams almost caught the horse that held on for 2nd and he finished 3rd. Unfortunately, Sound of Fury showed no interest down stretch and he dropped 3 spots to finish 10th.  After the horses crossed the wire, Left Coast Dreams galloped out very strong.

“He didn’t break fast, so I just let him cruise down the back to save some of his energy for the stretch run,” Jockey Iram Diego reported about Left Coast Dreams.  "At the top of the stretch, he responded when I got after him and he made a big move.  He’ll be a good fit in a longer race.”

"Great finish,” simply put by Mojo's Trainer JR Caldwell about Left Coast Dream.  “Sound of Fury still doesn't know what he's supposed to be doing.”

"Left Coast Dreams made an incredible run coming down the stretch," Fred exclaims.  "He settled, took dirt in his face, made up a lot of ground, and started picking off runners that were already moving at their top speed–you usually don’t see that in a short sprint race unless the horse is a strong/determined closer."

"JR’s Team will keep working with Sound of Fury," Fred explained.  "The horse is turning into a big boy—he’s developing a strong shoulder and massive backend, and he’s starting to stretch out in length.  So, physically, he’s maturing.  His mind, however, hasn’t caught up with his body." 

Both horses returned to the barn in nice form and in good moods.

"Our horses are bred to run longer distances; but, at 2 years old, only short races are offered," Fred pointed out.  "We just have to bide our time and get the horses ready when more suitable conditions come around later on in the year."
