February 06, 1997|By Tom Keyser

HIALEAH, Fla. -- Captain Bodgit, a promising 3-year-old colt trained by Gary Capuano, has been sold for $500,000.

Team Valor, based in Pasadena, Calif., bought Captain Bodgit from Phyllis Susini of Valrico, Fla., in a transaction that leaves the horse in Capuano's barn. Based at Bowie, Capuano is spending the winter at Hialeah Park with 18 horses.

The top mount is Captain Bodgit. He won five straight races, including the Laurel Futurity, before finishing third last month in his 3-year-old debut, the Holy Bull Stakes at Gulfstream Park.

His next assignment, Capuano said yesterday, will be the Fountain of Youth Stakes on Feb. 22 at Gulfstream. The goal is the Kentucky Derby on May 3 at Churchill Downs.
