Lindsay Frolic heads stakes lineup

August 06, 1994|By Kent Baker | Kent Baker,Sun Staff Writer

Highly touted Lindsay Frolic, winner of two of three races in her brief career, heads the lineup for two weekend stakes for 2-year-olds at Pimlico Race Course.

The well-bred Florida filly, who has shipped here from Calder, is the likely favorite tomorrow in the $50,000 Toddler Breeders' Cup Stakes after young male horses compete today in the $50,000 Primer Breeders' Cup Stakes. Both races are at 5 1/2 furlongs.

Wigberto Ramos is coming in from Miami to ride Lindsay Frolic, whose only defeat was by a half-length in the Riviera Stakes.

Lindsay Frolic is by Housebuster's sire, Mount Livermore, out of the top sprint mare Cherokee Frolic, who finished in the money in 35 of 45 career starts with 16 victories.

She is trained by Milt Wolfson.

Cumberland Gap seeks his third win in four starts in today's feature, the first Pimlico stakes for 2-year-olds. Joe Rocco has the mount.

NOTES: C.C. Smith, 62, a jockey for four decades at the Charles Town Races, died yesterday. Smith suffered an apparent heart attack while galloping a horse and later died at Jefferson Memorial Hospital in Charles Town. . . . Heavy rains forced yesterday's fifth and seventh races to be shifted off the turf, leading to 11 scratches among 23 scheduled starters. . . . The National Best Seven wager returns today with a jackpot carry-over of $177,140. . . . Aloma's Count wired the field at 25-to-1 odds under Billy Moorefield in the finale yesterday and set up a $10,556.40 triple payoff. Phillips Run was second at 80-to-1.
