WITH CHAMPION AMAZOMBIE SCRATCHED, FRUMIOUS STREAKS TO FIRST STAKES VICTORY
ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 21, 2012) – With a morning rain having put 2011 North American sprint champion Amazombie’s 2012 debut on hold, 6-year-old gelding Frumious notched his first stakes victory on Saturday by running off with Santa Anita’s Grade II, $150,000 Palos Verdes Stakes at six furlongs.
Ridden by Antonio Castanon, 6-1 shot Frumious bolted to the lead and was never approached while streaking to a 5 ¾-length victory in 1:07.28 over a lightening fast track that had been sealed prior a morning rain storm that had passed through by afternoon.
