Ceiling Crusher Wires Torrey Pines For First Graded Victory

Ceiling Crusher sprinted to a clear lead early, controlled the pace throughout, and romped away in the stretch to score a six-length win in the $150,000 Torrey Pines (G3) for 3-year-old fillies Saturday at Del Mar.

Flying Connection was best of the rest, finishing 3 1/2 lengths clear of Justique in third.

The 2-1 favorite in the field of eight, Ceiling Crusher returned $6.80 after completing the one-mile main track event in 1:37.41 under Edwin Maldonado. She clocked all the fractions: :22.14 for the opening quarter mile, :46:29 for the half mile, and 1:11.78 for six furlongs.

A California-bred daughter of Mr. Big trained by Doug O’Neill, Ceiling Crusher has never finished off the board in six career starts and added a fifth victory to her record while notching her first graded win.

The bay filly is campaigned by Wonderland Racing Stables, Todd Caddy, Time Kasparoff, and Ty Leatherman. Bred by Harris Farms, she is out of the Indian Charlie mare Palisadesprincess.
