Globetrotter out to make it 3 for 3

EmailETOBICOKE, Ontario - The Maryland-based Globetrotter will put his unbeaten record on the line Saturday at Woodbine in the $125,000 Display Stakes, a 1 1/16-mile race for 2-year-olds.

Globetrotter won his debut over six furlongs in September on the new synthetic Tapeta surface at Presque Isle Downs. Trainer Graham Motion then shipped him here for the Oct. 8 Grey Breeders' Cup Stakes, and he mounted a strong wide rally to win over 1 1/16 miles on the Polytrack.

"Everything's been pretty straightforward," said Motion. "He handled everything very nicely the first time at Presque Isle. He had breezed well on the Tapeta, so it was obviously a natural choice to run him there. We thought he was up to taking the next step at Woodbine, and he certainly handled that well. Hopefully he'll handle the dirt down the road, but we didn't see any need to change things at this point."

Motion said Globetrotter could make his next start in the Grade 1 CashCall Futurity at Hollywood Dec. 22.

The Display has lured a quality 12-horse field, which also includes Kesagami, Turf War, and Cool Gator.

Kesagami set dawdling fractions last time in the nine-furlong Coronation Futurity and dug in through the final furlong to win under Patrick Husbands.

"The pace was slow, and Patrick came up with a good ride," said trainer Sid Attard. "He wasn't supposed to be in front, but he made the lead easily, and with that pace, what was he supposed to do, take him back? He said every time he wanted him to do something, he was right there. They came at him a couple times, and he took off again."

Attard, who won the 2006 Display with Jiggs Coz, is hoping Kesagami is his Queen's Plate horse for next year.

"He's a classy colt," said Attard. "He likes to train. Nothing bothers him. He doesn't have to be in front."

Emma Wilson picks up the mount on Kesagami, while Husbands was named on both Mark Casse-trained runners, Turf War and Briarwood Circle.

Turf War had traffic problems on the far turn while saving ground in the Grade 3 Grey and faded in the stretch to finish sixth as the favorite.

Cool Gator rallied for second in both the Grey and the restricted Coronation. He's trying blinkers for the first time, and Emile Ramsammy replaces Wilson in the saddle.
