Pricey City Zip ‘Rockets’ Home Late

8th-SAR, $83,000, Msw, 9-1, 3yo/up, 6 1/2f, 1:16.21, ft.

+C Z ROCKET (c, 3, City Zip–Successful Sarah {GSP, $169,614}, by Successful Appeal) summoned $800,000 at last term’s OBS June sale after breezing in :21 1/5 and was dispatched at x-x for this career bow. Caboosing the field as Tommy T (Shackleford) ticked off an opening quarter in :21.89, the bay moved into sixth, still several lengths off the leader, through a half in :45.01. Tommy T appeared home free in early stretch, but C Z Rocket found another gear when tipped out two wide and came flying past the pacesetter late to score by two lengths. The winner’s GSP dam Successful Sarah is responsible for the juvenile filly City Success (City Zip); a yearling colt by Verrazano and a weanling filly by Tale of the Cat. She was bred back to that Ashford resident. C Z Rocket hails from the same family as last weekend’s GII Pat O’Brien S. winner Giant Expectations (Frost Giant). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $49,800.
