Hold My Call wins at Belmont Park on 10/05/19 in race #2!
10/05/19 | Elmont, NY – Dare To Dream Stable’s 2 yr old NY bred colt Hold My Call left a field of 8 maiden sprinters in his dust in scoring the first win of his young career at Belmont Park. Hold My Call was coming off back to back 4th place finishes while flashing his early speed before tiring in the final furlong. This time with blinkers added for this sprint Hold My Call would have none of that. The stunning chestnut colt by Hold Me Back broke sharply, and jockey Luis Saez put Hold My Call right into the race from the get-go. Saez had Hold My Call sitting 2nd just off the pace while being confidently ridden. At the five-sixteenths marker, he took charge leaving that station and responded well when Saez asked the chestnut for his best. In the stretch, the race was over, and it was just a matter of how many lengths Hold My Call would win by. Deep down the lane, Saez was in cruise control, and hand rode Hold My Call to the wire winning by a comfortable 4 lengths over second-place finisher Blues City. With this victory, Hold My Call has earnings of $33,700 in his brief career.
Congratulations to the Dare To Dream Stable Partners on this excellent maiden victory. Kudos to trainer Robert Falcone Jr. and his entire team for a fabulous job getting Hold My Call ready for a peak performance. He made a nice equipment change adding blinkers for this race, and that was a key factor in getting the best effort out of the colt. Finally, to outstanding jockey Luis Saez who once again showed why he is regarded as one of the top jockeys in the country. When Saez gets a horse to the front, it usually game over, and that’s what happened on this day!
