Berkeley, CA January 28, 2018)-Two weeks after scoring his first win of 2018, the Bedford Falls gelding Could Be the One kept his 3-year-old record perfect with a determined victory in a six-furlong allowance optional claiming race for sophomores at Golden Gate Fields on January 28.
Ridden by Juan Hernandez for Howard and Dee Hammer’s Remmah Racing and trainer Jack Steiner, the co-highweight overcame traffic and split rivals in late stretch to post an impressive half-length win in 1:10.78, marking his second consecutive triumph at the track and distance, and his fourth win from his last five outings.
Could Be the One is the first runner out of Sky Mesa’s winning daughter Sienna Sky. Bred in California by Joe Stiglich, Lloyd Grant and Carol Lingenfelter, he has run first or second in seven of his nine starts to date for earnings of $66,980.
Bedford Falls, a graded stakes-siring half-brother to leading sire Harlan’s Holiday, stands for $2,000 at Tommy Town Thoroughbreds in Santa Ynez.
