Call Me Clash all the way in Horatius


Jeremy Rose put 7-2 second-choice Call Me Clash on the lead early and stayed there, winning the $74,600 Horatius by three lengths, while the 3-5 John Rigattieri-trained entry of Alruncojump and Saratoga Lulaby both came up flat, running last and second-last in the field of six 3-year-olds.

Casey Doon, the 8-1 longest shot on the board, prompted the pace, angled out in the stretch, and hung on for second. Heart Throbbin' closed mildly for third, another four lengths behind.

Call Me Clash, trained by Scott Lake for Gerard Artz, ran the six furlongs in 1:10.49. It was his third win in eight starts.

Saratoga Lulaby and Alruncojump ran fifth and sixth all the way around, triggering generous show prices. Call me Clash paid $5.80, and Casey Doon and Heart Throbbin' $6.80 each.
