Stoney Fleece wins the Generous Stakes at Hollywood Park on 27th November
The two-year-old colt of Decarchy, Stoney Fleece is trained by John Sadler and falls under the ownership of Cecil Barber and Gary Barber has won the $100,000 Generous Stakes Grade 3 at Hollywood Park on 27th November. This proved to be his first
ever stakes victory. It is a one mile race that is for the participation by two-year-olds.
“It was a perfect trip," Rosario said. "You couldn’t ask for anything better. I was just taking my time and hoped he had something when I asked him. He really likes the turf”.
The pace setter for this race turned out to be Handsome Mike who was left behind in the end by 1 ¼ lengths with Stoney Fleece rushing through the wire. The runner up for the race was Handsome Mike who is trained by Melody Conlon and was being guided through
the track by Rafael Bejarano. Finishing the race third after the winner was Battle Force who is under charge John Shirreffs and had Mike Smith onboard.
Stoney Fleece’s stable mate Senor Rain was the last of the lot to leave the track with Martin Garcia riding. Stoney Fleece was able to cover the mile in a matter of a minute and :34.77 seconds which is the same time limit within which last year’s winner
of the Generous Stakes, Comma To The Top finished the race but was not really in alignment with the record that was set by The Leopard back in 2007, concluding the race in a minute and :34.28 seconds.
The two-year-old colt has raced six times during this season and has ended up winning a good amount of four starts. He won the Dm r Mcl on 28th July and then right after this one he claimed the D m r Str on 20th August on a six furlong
On 15th October Stoney Fleece won an allowance race at Saratoga which found Tiz Point standing in the second place and now the most recent success is at the Generous Stakes.
The colt, Stoney Fleece has displayed an almost flawlessly consistent performance throughout his very first season at racing. What level of potential is yet to surface and how successful he did be in the future will be depicted through the outcome of the
races that he get to participate in now.
