Blitzthemcalder trotted all the way in his Group 1 success.
Blitzthemcalder made it two out of two for the Australian trained runners on Blue Chips Farms Breeders Crown day when he trotted strongly to win the Group 1 Crazed Breeders Crown two-year-old trotters final.
The Boss Man ($2.80) was quick off the arm and comfortably took up the early running from Hackashaq ($101) who dropped on to the pegs to trail the pace.
Blitzthemcalder ($1.65), who is notoriously slow away, was taken away with caution from his driver Chris Alford. After trotting safely he was angled off the pegs to sit parked outside the leader as both horses controlled the race.
They clicked the tempo up down the back the final time and raced ten metres clear of the tiring Hackashaq, with Yankeeiron ($11) and New Zealand’s Bonechip ($16) making ground from back in the field.
Blitzthemcalder showed off his long loping stride in a dominant win of 13.9-metres. The Boss Man was gallant in second and clearly held Bonechip, who although a margin away, trotted home well for third. The race was run in a 2:01.3 mile rate with the last half completed in 58.7.
This outstanding juvenile has now proven what many questioned before the race, by trotting all the way under the pressure of a Group 1 race. He is now ten wins from just 13 starts and with the striking looking son of Metropolitan still on an upwards spiral, the world may be his oyster.
The two-year-old colt more than doubled his prizemoney with just over $66,000 in his kitty before the race he will move to a tick over $160,000 when the winner’s cheque of $99,785 is sent to connections.
