Singapore: Caller One last


American invaders Caller One and Western Pride, both trained by Jim Chapman, both lost badly at Kranji, Singapore, on Saturday.

Caller One failed to make the switch to turf in the six-furlong Singapore Airlines Krisflyer Sprint, finishing last of 12, more than 20 lengths behind the Australian-trained winner, North Boy.

Gary Stevens, who rode Caller One, said, "He traveled okay for the first two furlongs, but he didn't handle the track, which is very sandy on the inside. He was really struggling on it from the word go."

Western Pride made a bold bid to the front in the 1 1/4-mile, Group 1 Singapore Airlines International Cup, but he couldn't sustain the effort and weakened to finish 11th in the field of 13.

Grandera, owned by Godolphin, was a two-length winner under Frankie Dettori.
