Sam Houston: Schaumburg struts his stuff


Schaumburg is getting good. Claimed for $7,500 in April, he led at every call to take the $25,000 Buffalo Bayou Stakes at Sam Houston Race Park by 1 3/4 lengths over L.A. Spider Legs. It was another 3 1/2 lengths back in third to favorite Coach Rags.

Schaumburg ($19.40), under regular rider Rita Helton, covered the 1 1/16 miles over firm turf in 1:43.60. Trained by Bill Pettit, he has won his last three starts.

Chauffe au Rouge and Strappado were scratched from the Buffalo Bayou.
