Albany, CA (May 28, 2022) – As Amatter of Fact, our homebred son of Union Rags, rallied with gusto and grit to win the 7th race at Golden Gate Fields, a six furlong allowance over the all weather surface.
The 3-year-old colt earned his maiden diploma two starts back and rallied from last to finish second in his first race against winners. Today he was closer to the pace early as he continues to learn his craft. Never more than three lengths off the early pace, As Amatter of Fact improved his position to challenge for the lead coming off the turn. He took the lead a furlong from home and dug in to hold off all comers to win by three-quarters of a length.
Produced by the winning Speightstown mare, Tiz a Tommy Town, As Amatter of Fact is trained by Jonathan Wong.
