Conquest Farenheit Makes It Look Easy


American Derby Could Be Next

Heavily favored Conquest Farenheit dominated a field of nine Sunday’s Pasadena Stakes on turf.

He won by 2 1/4 lengths under Norberto Arroyo, Jr. Trained by Peter Miller, the Kentucky-bred colt by Scat Daddy set fast front-running fractions while getting a mile in 1:33.58. His splits were 22.94, 45.59, 1:09.46 and 1:21.46.

“What a horse!” exclaimed Miller.“This is a serious horse.For him to run that way with fast splits and come away like he did is pretty impressive.It showed he could get two turns and it looked like he had another gear.I think we’ll try him next in the American Turf Derby at Churchill Downs.”

An impressive winner of the Baffle Stakes going 6 1/2 furlongs down Santa Anita’s hillside turf course on Feb. 20, Conquest Farenheit was the even money favorite.

“I love the way he ran today,” said Arroyo.“He’s still learning.He was waiting for horses in the stretch, pricking his ears back and forth.He settled nice with me today and I expect him to get better as he goes on.He was full of run with me galloping out.”

Owned by Rockingham Ranch and Chad Littlefield, Conquest Farenheit is now 5-3-1-1 overall and with the winner’s share of $47,700, he has earnings of $157,745.
