Saturday, October 07, 2017
The pair first struck in the first race when they won a $7,500 maiden claiming race with Beat Goes On ($6.80). The winner was a gelded son of Quiet American owned by his breeder, Curtis C. Green of Arlington, TX.
Asmussen and Vazquez were represented again in the winners circle in the third race when Vazquez rode Night Patrol ($3.20) to a convincing 2-length tally versus $7,500 claimers. The win was the 14th lifetime victory for the seven-year-old gelded son of Tapit who is owned by Maggi Moss of Des Moines, IA.
And in the fifth race, jockey Ramon Vazquez swung wide at the top of the stretch with Drop Kick ($5) and rolled home to a 3 ½-length win. Asmussen trains the two-year-old colt by Power Broker for Gary & Mary West of Omaha, NE.
