Imperialism gets first stakes winner! watch video
Florida-bred Master Dunker got his first stakes victory Sunday at Gulfstream Park when first-place finisher King Congie was disqualified for interference in the stretch run and placed third in the $100,000 Hallandale Beach Stakes.
Master Dunker, a 3-year-old Imperialism colt bred by Belleair’s Stanley S. Moles, had crossed the finish line second, a head behind King Congie, before being elevated to first place. King Congie, the winner of the $100,000 Tropical Park Derby at Calder last month, was demoted for interfering with Florida-bred Brilliant Speed, who had finished third, a neck behind Master Dunker, in a blanket finish.
“Turning for home, King Congie kept coming out and took Brilliant Speed out three, four paths,” steward Don Brumfield said. “There’s no way Brilliant Speed could have got by King Congie the way he was carrying him out.”
Master Dunker, trained by David Fawkes for Get Away Farm Racing Stable, entered the race off a third-place finish in the $100,000 Dania Beach Stakes on the Gulfstream lawn last month. Prior to that, the colt concluded his 2010 campaign with a three-length victory in a $32,500 allowance at Calder in November, his turf debut.
For his career, Master Dunker has won three of his seven starts for $109,323. He was a $39,000 purchase at OBS last April.
Brilliant Speed, a Dynaformer colt bred and owned by Ocala’s Live Oak Plantation, had finished second to Adirondack Summer in the Dania Beach. Prior to that, the Tom Albertrani trainee had ended his 2010 campaign by breaking his maiden in his fifth try, taking a $20,000 maiden special weight race by 1 ½ lengths at Tampa Bay Downs in December. Brilliant Speed has one win from seven starts and $65,750 in earnings.
In the Hallandale Beach, Master Dunker and jockey Luis Saez stalked the pace in third place as Stormy Going led the field of nine 3-year-olds through a quarter-mile in 23.33 seconds and a half-mile in 48.35. King Congie was in sixth place early under Javier Castellano.
Cozy Kitten had moved up to first place at the head of the stretch, with Master Dunker in second and King Congie in third after rallying three-wide around the far turn. Brilliant Speed and jockey John Velazquez were close behind in fourth place. King Congie moved out badly down the stretch before gaining the lead with half a furlong remaining and finishing the 1 1/16-mile race on a firm turf course in 1:41.30.
Master Dunker paid $26.80, $11.20 and $6.40, while the favored King Congie returned $5 and $3.80 and Brilliant Speed $3.60.
Fawkes said Master Dunker, out of the Buckfinder mare Finding Bucks, likely will run in the $150,000 Palm Beach Stakes (G3), a 1 1/8-mile test on the Gulfstream lawn March 12.
“He’s definitely a lot better on turf,” said Fawkes. “He got away a little slow last time and did it again (Sunday). Fortunately, they backed him out of the gate while they were having trouble loading (Liberty Cap). He was still a little fidgety and appeared to run in spots, but then we saw what happened in the stretch when they were all over the place.”

WILDEYDSOUTHERNBOY gets 2nd in White Oak Handicap
WILDEYDSOUTHERNBOY, the 5-year-old gelding by Double Honor, out of the Wild Rush mare Pledge Mom placed in the $100,000, 6 furlong White Oak Handicap at Arlington Park for Homewrecker Racing LLC and trainer Hugh Robertson.
IMPERIALISM 2-Year-Olds Breeze well in April
Here is Hip 455 during the April Breeze Show:
1st Imperialism 2-Y-O Colt at auction sells for $225,000
Hip #95, an Imperialism Colt out of Gold Alert mare, Dover Court worked 21.3 at the OBS March Sale under tack show. Bred by Mr. Norman Dellheim and consigned by Southern Chase Farm (Gregg & Karen Dodd), the colt sold Tuesday, March 16 for $225,000 to Stonestreet Stable.
JET PROPULSION 3rd in G3
JET PROPULSION runs 3rd in the Grade 3 Canadian Turf Stakes at Gulfstream. JET PROPULSION set the pace, dug in gamely in upper stretch and stayed on well. The gelding by Double Honor has updated earnings of $579,523
JET PROPULSION WINS $300,000 SUNSHINE MILLIONS TURF STAKES
It was a very good day for Marty Wolfson.
The trainer had two horses entered in the $300,000 Sunshine Millions Turf at Gulfstream Park Jan. 30, and they finished one-two in the 1 1/8-mile turf event.
Interestingly, Wolfson won the race with Jet Propulsion, who in his last start at Calder Casino & Race Course was claimed for $50,000 for Farnsworth Stables LLC. The Florida-bred 7-year-old gelding by Double Honor had back class—and earnings of almost $400,000—but clearly Wolfson picked a good one at the right time.
Jet Propulsion, ridden by Julien Leparoux, displayed his usual early speed in the Turf. He took the early lead, at one point had a five-length lead, and basically coasted home an easy winner.
The Wolfson-trained Pickapocket, owned by Martin Cherry, chased his stablemate in the lane but came up short. Kent Desormeaux rode Pickapocket; Leparoux had ridden him in his last two starts. Picou and Soldier's Dancer rallied for third and fourth, respectively.
The fractions on a firm course were :24.21 for the opening quarter-mile, :48.23 for the half-mile, 1:11.18 for six furlongs, and a quick 1:33.93 for a mile. The final time was 1:45.96.
Jet Propulsion paid $8, $5.40, and $4 as the second choice in a field of nine.
“I’ve been watching this horse for a couple years,” Wolfson said of Jet Propulsion. “He has beaten up on horses of mine a number of times. I never thought he’d be dropped in for a tag, but when he was, I took him with this race in mind.
“He has settled down a lot in the last six weeks. I don’t have anything in mind for him right now, but I think a mile-and-an-eighth might be his best distance.”
“I was happy, but not surprised, that they didn’t come with me in the first turn,” Leparoux said. “We got an easy lead and that was good for us. At the three-eighths pole I started to go, and I kind of looked back a couple of times on the final turn to see if they were coming, but they weren’t. My horse made a big move, and we won easily.”
Favored Soldier’s Dancer was in his usual position early but didn’t have enough late kick.
“I liked how he ran out of the gate; he came out good,” jockey Manoel Cruz said. “But the track was fast and the pace didn’t help. The race didn’t come out exactly the way we wanted.”
Jet Propulsion has won 13 times in 45 starts, with 10 seconds and three thirds.
TWO STEP SALSA TO STAND AT GET AWAY FARM IN 2010
Manuel Andrade has acquired complete interest in multiple graded stakes winner Two Step Salsa from Godolphin Racing and will stand him at his Get Away Farm near Reddick, Fla. The 4-year-old son of Petionville will stand for $5,000.
Two Step Salsa won or placed in nine of a dozen races and earned $1,104,040. Initially campaigned by breeder/owner Jeff Nielsen’s Everest Stables and trained by Julio Canani, Two Step Salsa captured two stakes and placed in three others in the Everest silks.
As 3-year-old in 2008, he captured the Lazaro Barrera Memorial Stakes (gr. II) and the Affirmed Handicap (gr. III) in consecutive starts at Hollywood Park and then ran second in the Swaps Stakes (gr. II) at Hollywood, with grade I winner Colonel John finishing third. He closed out the year with a third-place effort in the TVG Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile.
Two Step Salsa raced this year for Godolphin, founded by Sheikh Mohammed. He captured the Godolphin Mile Sponsored by Etisalat (UAE-II) and finished fourth in the True North (gr. II) and Salvator Mile (gr. III) Handicaps.
Two Step Salsa, a grandson of Seeking the Gold, is out of the Seattle Slew mare Two to Waltz. The Seeking the Gold/Seattle Slew cross is responsible for grade I winner Cape Town and French champion Seeking the Pearl.

Labor in stakes competition, with the result that Double Honor gained

3-year-old gelding became another first-time stakes-winner for his
sire, at the same time surpassing the $100,000 mark in earnings. The
$36,000 winner's check from the one-mile race boosted his earnings to
$133,782 on a record of 3-5-0 in 12 starts.
10 VICTORIES, $116,927 AND YET ANOTHER NEW MEMBER TO THE DOUBLE HONOR $100,000 CLUB
Holiday Moment shipped to Tampa Bay Downs in December needing nearly
$19,000 to reach the coveted $100,000 mark in earnings. With three
victories and a second under his belt at the meeting, the 5-year-old
Double Honor gelding has joined that rapidly-growing club for his sire,

Cant Stop Me appeared hopelessly out of contention at the top of the
stretch in a $46,500 allowance race at Gulfstream Park on Feb. 25. But
jockey Manny Cruz shifted the 4-year-old Double Honor colt into
overdrive and Cant Stop Me inhaled the field in the last sixteenth and

daughter of Double Honor took the lead early in the one-mile race,
