Historically Earns First Stakes Win in Cleveland Gold Cup at Thistledown

Historically picked up his first stakes win by scoring a commanding victory in Saturday’s $75,000 Daniel Stearns Cleveland Gold Cup at Jack Thistledown in North Randall, Ohio.

The brown gelding, a son of Carpe Diem – Delitefully Wild, by Offlee Wild, bested eight rivals to capture the one and one eighth mile contest in 1:53.68 over the Cleveland dirt. It was the 53rd running of the stake for 3-year-old Ohio-registered foals.

Ridden to victory by Luis Saez and trained by Tim Hamm for WinStar Farm and Blazing Meadows Farm, Historically upped his career earnings to $102,265 and now has three wins, two seconds and one third in ten starts.

To Win, a 45-1 longshot, finished an impressive second for Fernando Becerra, while 5-1 Uptown raced well to be third for rider Jose Bracho, with the 1-1 crowd favorite Buckeye Magic finishing fourth with John McKee in the irons.

Historically paid $14.80, $6.40, and $8.40. Second-place To Win paid $27.80 and $21.60. Uptown paid $7.20 to show.
