Mojo Race Recap: Heza City Slicker's 2nd Race at Lone Star Park!

June 19, 2015 

Head On Race Pic

Mojo's two-year-old Colt, Heza City Slicker (by City Zip out of Sheza Nasty Lady), ran in 5 Furlong race at Lone Star Park (LS) on Friday, June 19.  This was Slick's 2nd start of his young racing career.

“He demonstrated what we hoped we would see: A nice closing finish and competitive spirit,” said Fred Taylor, Mojo’s CEM.

City Slicker was off to a good start and then coasted going down the backstretch (he actually lost a length at one point and went from 5th to 6th).  When Jockey Iram Diego called on him to get back into the race, Slick grabbed the bit around the turn and started to dig in.  At the top of the stretch, Diego shook the reigns and City Slicker went to work—he not only picked up the pace and passed two horses down the lane; but he also made up two-and-a-half lengths to finish 3rd.

After the race, the jockey Iram Diego said: “The horse kinda of stopped running for me (down the backstretch); but when I asked him to get back in it, he started running again, made a nice move in the stretch, and looks like he won't  have any problem going a longer distance.”

Mojo's Trainer, JR Caldwell, said: “He's still learning; but he showed us some good things about his potential.  I really liked the way he finished, and given his pedigree (his mom was a successful on the turf), I'm planning to switch him over to grass.  He could be a solid two-turn horse for us on the turf in the future."

"It was an encouraging to see the way Slick ran tonight," Fred says.  "This kind of result makes us feel good about the horse we selected (as a yearling) and effort being put into developing this young talent."    

What’s next for Heza City Slicker?  Another race (hopefully on the turf if Mother Nature cooperates) in July before the Lone Star Park race meet ends.

So, stay tuned for upcoming racing info about Heza City Slicker, as well as more exciting news on our other horses in training.
