Clubhouse Ride preps for CashCall Futurity



Clubhouse Ride, third in the Delta Jackpot Stakes on Nov. 20, and Ronin Dax, fifth in his first two stakes races, worked at Hollywood Park on Friday in advance of the $750,000 CashCall Futurity on Dec. 18.

Clubhouse Ride worked five furlongs in 59.80 seconds, while Ronin Dax was timed in 1:00.40.

Clubhouse Ride has won 2 of 9 starts and $197,550. The winner of the Barretts Juvenile at the Los Angeles County Fair meeting at Fairplex Park in September, Clubhouse Ride was beaten six lengths by CashCall Futurity hopeful Gourmet Dinner in the Delta Jackpot Stakes over 1 1/16 miles.

Ronin Dax, trained by Robert Troeger, was a troubled fifth in the Grade 3 Iroquois Stakes at Churchill Downs on Oct. 31 after a poor start.

The CashCall Futurity will have a big field. The candidate includes the stakes winners Comma to the Top, J P’s Gusto, Rustler Hustler, and Slammer Time; the stakes-placed hopefuls Awesome Patriot, Industry Leader, Prayer for Relief, and Riveting Reason; as well as Crimson China, Boxeur des Rues, and High Level Jeff.
