Csaba and Miami Cat to Represent Gleaves in Saturday’s Mambo Meister

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (May 23, 2012) – Bruce Hollander and Cary Shapoff’s graded stakes-placed Csaba, along with Hollander, Shapoff, and trainer Phil Gleaves’ Miami Cat, headline a field of nine sophomore colts and geldings that are scheduled to cover one mile on the Calder Casino & Race Course turf Saturday for the $55,000 Mambo Meister. The race is named in honor of the popular Gleaves-trained gelding, a nine-time stakes winner at Calder that broke down during a routine morning workout on April 9.

Csaba exits a commanding off-the-turf allowance victory at Calder on May 12 where the colt led at every call en route to a 5 ¾-length triumph. Earlier this season, the son of Kitten’s Joy crossed the wire third in the Grade 3 Palm Beach Stakes on the Gulfstream Park turf where he finished less than three lengths behind runner-up Dullahan, who has since returned to win the Grade 1 Bluegrass Stakes and finish third in the Grade 1 Kentucky Derby.
