Sound of Fury's First Start at RP

August 20, 2016 

Sound of Fury (by Broken Vow out of La Concerto) ran for the fifth time in a 5.5 furlong maiden claiming race at Remington Park (RP) on Saturday, August 20.

“Sometimes, you have to go with the conditions that are available,” said Fred Taylor, Mojo’s CEM.  “And, this race is one of those times.  Thus, we’re treating it as a glorified workout..”

Race Recap

Sound of Fury came out of the gate well and was up with the pace down the backstretch.  Going into the turn, he was awkward in his moves and the rider had to get after him to stay in the race.  At the top of the stretch, Sound of Fury started coming back; but he got pinched by several horses that were closing in and the rider had to check his stride.  By the time Sound of Fury had gathered himself it was too late to rally and the pair coasted home to finish 6th.

Jockey CJ McMahon reported: “He started well; but was lugging in and I had work to get him to go forward.  Around the turn, he started to relax, so I had to start urging him on.  At the top of the stretch, there was traffic, I had to steady, and by the time he got back into stride it was too late because the other horses were running past him.  I think he’s with the right company of horses; but he needs to be in a longer race to get into a rhythm and close.”


So, what’s next for Sound of Fury?

“The current condition book for RP only offered short races for horses racing at the Maiden Claiming level,” Fred explains.  “So, for the time being, we just have to continue biding our time. JR (Mojo’s Trainer) and his Team will make the right adjustments to get the horse ready to roll once the ideal conditions become available.”
