BURST BY MOBILIZED LEADS TO 7-1 UPSET IN $75,418 CHARLESTON PURSE


ARCADIA, Calif. (March 30, 2012) – Winless since November of 2010, 7-1 shot Mobilized burst between horses in deep stretch Friday to capture Santa Anita’s $75,418 Charleston Purse by one-half length over Supreme Summit in the 6 ½-furlong competition over the track’s downhill turf course.

Blocked behind rivals in midstretch, Garrett Gomez, riding the 6-year-old California-bred for the first time, observed pace-setter Victory Pete move inward and pushed the proverbial button. “When I saw the No. 4 go to his left,” said Gomez, “my horse put his head down and got the job done. I never even hit him.” Mobilized crossed the wire in 1:12.55.
