Toccet to Me won the fourth stakes race of his career on Sunday, when he edged favorite Hezamazing by a neck in the $50,000 Arapahoe Park Classic. It was another two lengths back in third to Joe Carl.

Toccet to Me ($34.20) raced in fifth early in the 1 1/8-mile race, as E F Five led the field through an opening six furlongs in 1:10.44. Toccet to Me advanced from there and went on to cover the distance on a track rated fast in 1:49.16.

Kelly Bridges rode the winner for trainer Douglas Grinolds, who races the horse with Vivian Grinolds.

Toccet to Me has now won 9 of 26 starts and $153,053. He was a more than eight-length winner of the 2009 Colorado Derby at Arapahoe.
