Los Alamitos: Freaky completes unprecedented sweep at age 6


Freaky became the first Quarter Horse to win all six of the major stakes for older horses offered at Los Alamitos when he edged Snitcher by a head in Sunday night’s $100,000 Go Man Go Handicap.

Freaky, a 6-year-old who was the world champion Quarter Horse of  2009, has also won the track’s Champion of Champions, the Los Alamitos Winter Championship, the Vessels Maturity, the Spencer Childers California Breeders Championship Handicap, and the Robert Boniface Los Alamitos Invitational Championship. Overall, he is an eight-time stakes winner at Los Alamitos.

Freaky($16.20) on Sunday night covered 400 yards in 19.32 seconds in what was the third-fastest clocking of the Go Man Go. Snitcher finished a nose in front of 4-5 favorite Chivalry Sr, who was third.

Eduardo Nicasio was aboard Freaky for owner Armando Aguirre and trainer Sergio Fiscal, who picked up his first Grade 1 win in the Go Man Go.

“I’ve been Freaky’s trainer for about four weeks now,” Fiscal said in a release issued by Los Alamitos. “The credit goes to everyone that has worked with this champion in the past. Concepcion Balderrama, who had him at Remington Park, is the one person that has been caring for him on a day-to-day basis. He deserves the recognition for this win.”

Freaky could make his next start in the Boniface on Oct. 9, a race he has won twice before at Los Alamitos.

With his win in the Go Man Go, Freaky is now first in line to receive an invitation to the Grade 1, $750,000 Champion of Champions if a horse defects from the race, or if an invited horse holds two berths. The Champion of Champions will be run Dec. 10 at 440 yards.
