Del Mar, CA (August 28, 2022) – Opening Buzz came within 4/5 of the course record as our Tommy Town homebred daughter of Stanford flew to victory in the 7th race at Del Mar, an $85,000 allowance going five grassy furlongs over the Jimmy Durante turf course.
Favored over her ten opponents in the five furlong turf dash, 3-year-old Opening Buzz had her running shoes smoking a few stride away from the gate. She dueled with a speedy foe to her outside, eclipsing the first quarter in 21.83. Opening Buzz was up by a half-length midway around the turn and was clear as she soared past the half in 43.95. She drew off in classy fashion through the lane, finishing her final furlong in 11.73 and the trip in 55.68. Her margin at the wire was nearly three lengths.
Opening Buzz sports a two-for-three lifetime record and earning of $79,600. Trained by Jonathan Wong, she is out of the Unbridled’s Song mare, Open Mic.
