Sam Houston: Makeshift, Worldventurer win divisions of Texas Stallion Stakes
Makeshift became a stakes winner Saturday night at Sam Houston Race Park, when she darted to a 2 1/2-length win over Tastefullyxcessive in the $75,000 fillies division of the Texas Stallion Stakes.
The race was one of two stakes on the program. In the $75,000 colts and geldings division of the Texas Stallion Stakes, Worldventurer picked off his third career stakes win, winning by a length over Memo Jo.
The races complemented the Texas Thoroughbred Association’s annual awards banquet that honored last year’s Texas-bred champions, including horse of the year Coyote Legend. The banquet was held at Sam Houston.
Makeshift ($6.40) stalked the pace set by Esscalator, got clear, and went on to cover the mile for 3-year-old fillies by eligible stallions in 1:40.04. Roman Chapa rode the winner for trainer Steve Asmussen.
“I had to wait to get the right opening,” said Chapa. “When I asked her to go she did it so easily. My filly really relaxed for me.”
Makeshift is a daughter of Texas Bling and she races for her breeder, W.S. Farish. She has now won 2 of 4 starts and $62,506.
Worldventurer validated his award as champion Texas-bred 2-year-old of 2012 with a smart win in the colts and geldings division of the Texas Stallion Stakes. He covered the mile for 3-year-olds by eligible stallions in 1:39.44. Cliff Berry was aboard for Wesley Melcher and trainer Bret Calhoun.
Worldventurer, a son of Wimbledon bred by Clarence Scharbauer Jr., won a division of last year’s Texas Thoroughbred Association Sales Futurity and last month accounted for the Groovy Stakes at Sam Houston. The horse has now won 4 of 10 starts and $202,432.
