Holy Bull Stakes
Latest Starlight Racing News:
Eclipse Award winner Shanghai Bobby made a
stellar sophomore debut at Gulfstream Park on January 26th with a blazing career-high Beyer
score of 100! Breaking from the 1 post, Bobby
took and held the lead along the rail, covering
the backstretch in solid fractions.  It took a track record-setting performance to defeat Shanghai Bobby (in fact, Bobby's time beat the previous
record as well in this G3 race) and his effort was
just two lengths short of the win.  This is a very
promising transition from his two-year old 
to three-year old career and shows great gains
in both speed and maturity.  Pointing towards
the Florida Derby on March 30th, the Spring of 2013
looks to be a very exciting season.
