Caixa Eletronica, winning the Fall Highweight on Thanksgiving, will be pointed to a defense of his Charles Town Classic win in the spring.

OZONE PARK, N.Y. - While the majority of trainer Todd Pletcher’s stakes winners are headed for the warm climes of south Florida this week, multiple graded stakes winner Caixa Eletronica was left behind as one of the anchors to the New York string.

Pletcher said Caixa Eletronica, winner of last Thursday’s Grade 3 Fall Highweight, would be pointed to the $1 million Charles Town Classic – a race he won this past spring – next April and have a few starts in the Northeast beforehand. One of those races could be in the General George at Laurel, typically run on Presidents Day.

Caixa Eletronica finished sixth in last year’s General George and emerged from the race with a lung infection.
Since Mike Repole claimed him for $62,500 on March 9, 2011, Caixa Eletronica has gone 7 for 20 and earned $1,336,500.
