Arlington: Sharp Catalano debut maiden winner


First-time Pacific Ocean was bet off the board in race 4, a 3 & up Poly sprint, and 3yo Ghostzapper gelding ran to the wagering. Got slammed both sides at the start, was last early, but cruised up to contest the lead before an eighth of a mile was out. Put away pace rival at top of stretch and lengthened nicely in the final three-sixteenths. Looked like real racehorse, with good final time of 1:16.91 for 6.5fs.
