Whosurpal Makes New Owners Proud

Whosurpal was claimed two weeks ago for $15,000 by Tessa Roland and Thomas Mazzone and the six-year-old gelding is sure making a great impression with his new connections.

After rolling to an 8-3/4 length victory last week in 1:53.3 in a $7,400 conditioned pace in his debut in the JD Perrin barn, Whosurpal stepped up in class and found the $10,000 Open Pace at Buffalo Raceway a breeze as well by coasting to an easy 2-1/4 length victory over China Dream in 1:54.4 on Saturday night (July 16).

Driven for the second straight week by Jim Morrill Jr., Whosurpal sat fourth behind the pace-setting Hes Got It (Ron Beback Jr.) to the half in :57.1.

But down the backside the final time, Whosurpal was first over and brushed to the lead without any trouble, opening up a commanding six length advantage at the top of the lane. Midway through the stretch, Morrill Jr. throttled down Whosurpal and beat the non-threatening China Dream while Bad Fox (Lee Dahn) was third.

It was the third victory in 25 starts this season for Whosurpal (Whosurboy-Galyn Seelster), a winner of $31,112 this season and $115,308 lifetime.

Morrill Jr. finished the card with five victories while Todd Cummings had a double. Perrin had a training four-bagger and Roland had four trips to the winner's circle as an owner.

There's an 11-race card set for Sunday afternoon at 12:30 p.m. The New York Sire Stakes will be in town with the three-year-old filly trotters to square off in a pair of $60,200 events. There will also be action in the Excelsior A and B Series.
