CURIOUS CAL Closes Through the Stretch to Earn Allowance Win

After finishing runner-up in his last two starts, including by a head last out at Belmont, CURIOUS CAL rallied through the stretch to win a 5 1/2-furlong allowance by a length. Making his third start after a seven-month lay-off, the son of COWBOY CAL was 3 1/2 lengths off the lead as they turned for home but came charging down the stretch to get the win at Finger Lakes. CURIOUS CAL was a three-length Maiden Special Weight winner at Saratoga and was also a back-to-back allowance winner at Aqueduct. Lifetime record: 18-4-3-3, $191,664. O-Francis J. Paolangeli.
