Arlington: Bullstar, former professional maiden, now on win streak


Bullstar ran his career record to 0-13 with a narrow loss here June 17 as the overwhelming favorite in a $25K turf maiden-claimer. But Bullstar now is on a two-race winning streak, easily besting $25K maidens July 8, and delivering another much-the-best victory in just-completed race 7, the first grass race on the card. Winner ran a mile in 1:38.35 over firm turf, 'bout what one would expect from $15K N2L claimers. Disqualification of Fist of Rage from second to third for coming over on Gamblers Reward in the final furlong seemed totally justified.

The Bullstar win was good for leading owner Frank Calabrese, but race before Calabrese-owned Morekissesformonkey was pulled up in stretch of a $7.5K N3L claimer.
