    ARROM BEAR SCORES SHARP HOLIDAY VICTORY

    AUBURN, Wash. (May 30, 2016) – Arrom Bear remained razor-sharp Monday, reeling in Scat Daddybaby and drawing clear for a 3 ¼-length victory in the $21,000 El Jimador Purse for 3-year-olds and up at Emerald Downs.

    Ridden by Javier Matias, Arrom Bear smoked six furlongs in 1:08.33, and paid $7, $3.80 and $2.60. Frank Lucarelli is the winning trainer for the partnership of Center Point Racing Stables and Sabers Drawn Racing. A 4-year-old Washington-bred by Nationhood-Lite Nite, Arrom Bear has strung together back-to-back monster six-furlong races at Emerald Downs, defeating $40,000 optional claimers in winning times of 1:07.67 and 1:08.33.

    The dark bay gelding also has developed an effective stalking style, a tactic that played perfectly again Monday. In third place early, as Scat Daddybaby led through fractions of :21.95 and :44.39, Arrom Bear rallied four-wide into the lane, gained the lead from Scat Daddybaby past mid-stretch, and drew clear to the wire.

    Botch, a 17-1 long shot ridden by Leslie Mawing, rallied to edge Scat Daddybaby for second and paid $10 and $5.60. Scat Daddybaby, ridden by Juan Gutierrez, finished third and paid $3.40. 

    Thetrailerguy, Grinder Sparksaglo, Solemnly Swear, Canducharlie and It Doesn’t Add Up completed the order of finish. Rocco Bowen, rider aboard Thetrailerguy, lodged an objection against Scat Daddybaby for alleged interference on the backstretch, but the stewards disallowed the claim.

    Arrom Bear improved to 7-0-2 in 16 starts lifetime with earnings of $78,639, including $11,550 for Sunday’s win.Center Point Racing Stables (Scott Centers, Anchorage, AK) and Sabers Drawn Racing (Andy Evans, Seattle) also are hot, compiling a 5-1-2 record in 10 starts with earnings of $48,734.

    NOTES: Leslie Mawing rode two winners on the holiday card and tied Rocco Bowen 29-all atop the riders’ standings. . .Javier Matias also rode two winners, including the feature aboard Arrom Bear. . .Trainer Roddina Barrett continued her hot streak with Quarter Horses, saddling Heza Flying Fast ($6.20) and Unleashthedemon to a one-two finish in the Monday opener at 300 yards. Barrett has been the winning trainer in four of the six Quarter Horse races to date. . .Barrett also had a Thoroughbred win with Demonsdarlin ($22.60) in race three, and she finished the week with two Quarter Horse wins and two Thoroughbred wins. . .Frank Lucarelli also had two training wins, Arrom Bear and fifth race winner Fine Red Wine ($5). . .Blaine Wright, who saddled Botch to a second in the feature race, tops the trainers’ standings with 15 wins, followed by Jeff Metz with 13, and Mike Puhich and Lucarelli tied for third with 11 wins each. . .Monday’s program was the 23rd day of the 70-day meet, meaning the season is almost one-third complete. . .In the $0.50 Pick 5—fortified by a $6,270 carryover—there were multiple winning tickets worth $90.60 apiece. . .In the $0.20 Pick 7, however, one winning ticket took home $2,890.90—not bad considering Demonsdarlin was the only winner to reach double digits in the sequence. . .Live racing resumes Friday with first post 6:30 p.m.                                                   –##–
