Fairplex: A first for Fogelsonger


POMONA, Calif. - Don'tsellmeshort ($4.20) gave jockey Ryan Fogelsonger his first California hundred-grander, winning the $122,898 Barretts Juvenile by 1 1/4 lengths over Fountain Grove.

Front-runner I'm Awesome Again finished third. Three others - Presumption, Devoted Lover, and Rush Into Heaven - were eliminated when Presumption blew the first turn and carried out both rivals.

Don'tsellmeshort is owned by Cecil Peacock and trained by Dan Hendricks. A California-bred son of Benchmark, Don'tsellmeshort has now won 3 of 6 starts.
