No Tolerance all the way in Carey win

Email

STICKNEY, Ill. - No Tolerance bounded out to a clear early lead - and bounded home a winner of the Grade 3 , the first graded stakes victory of his career.

You could see jockey Jesse Campbell look right and left as he left the gate with No Tolerance, clearly the speed of the $150,000 Carey, a one-mile turf race. Was anyone else trying for the front? The old warrior Scooter Roach showed speed from the gate, but only to get some position from an outside post. By the first turn, No Tolerance had slipped clear, the opening quarter-mile run in a dawdling 24.03 seconds, and that might have been the difference in the race.

No Tolerance held on to beat a pair of longshots, Rapid Proof, who finished second by a head, and Come on Jazz, another three-quarters back in third. Second-choice Fort Prado barely got fourth, and favored Therecomesatiger was a no-show, finishing seventh of eight.

Owned by the Easy Money Stable and trained by Jesse Campbell's father, Mike Campbell, No Tolerance paid $12.40 to win, and was timed in 1:35.54 for a mile on firm turf.

"He's a wonderful horse," said Mike Campbell, who claimed No Tolerance for $30,000 during the spring of 2005. "He's been difficult to manage at times, but he seems to come up with a big race."

Indian Maid BC: Stormina gets the trip

Stormina got a perfect trip, Rich in Spirit a terrible one: Guess which horse won the Indian Maid Breeders' Cup Handicap?

Stormina, tracking a lone longshot speed horse, took over in midstretch of the $127,400 , and held off a last-gasp surge from favored Rich in Spirit, who was in trouble the entire last quarter-mile of the race. Stormina, in from New York for trainer Todd Pletcher, won by three-quarters of a length.

"You can pretty much put her wherever you want," said winning rider John Velazquez. "It was pretty easy."

Easy it was not for Mark Guidry and Rich in Spirit. Breaking from the rail, Rich in Spirit raced on the rail all the way around and never found clear sailing. She was covered up by Stormina as Guidry looked for room around the far turn, then found Miss Mambo on her outside as Guidry tried to get out of his trap again at the eighth pole. Guidry finally found an inside seam in the final yards. Rich in Spirit punched, but it was too late.

"I think she was the best horse in the race," said Guidry.

The Indian Maid was Stormina's fifth win in seven starts this season for owners Wertheimer and Frere. Stormina ($6) was timed in 1:41.75 for 1 1/16 miles over firm turf. Miss Mambo beat out Royal Copenhagen for third.
