NUMEROLOGIST Takes Maiden Special Debut

With a bullet four-furlong work in :46 4/5 three weeks back, NUMEROLOGIST had to battle through the stretch to win his Maiden Special Weight debut. The 4-year-old colt from the second crop of ALTERNATION stalked the early pace in third in this 6 1/2-furlong sprint. He moved off the rail going into the turn, but had to steady briefly after a horse stopped in front of him. He regained his momentum going around the turn, drew alongside the leader with an eighth of a mile to go and got a neck in front at the wire racing at Sunland Park. Lifetime record: 1-1-0-0, $12,240. O-Dilly Dilly Racing. B-Pin Oak Stud. T-Simon Buechler.
