Chulainn in a New York Photo

Newcal Stable’s homebred CHULAINN didn’t mind sunny but cold Aqueduct this afternoon, getting his nose down just a whisker ahead of favored Dripping Gold to win his 11-furlong allowance on the grass with Manny Franco aboard. Per the NYRA chart, he “gamely got the bob on the wire.”

It was career win number five for the New York-bred, who has made all twelve of his lifetime starts in the Empire State. This was his first score Aqueduct; his previous victories have been at Belmont and Saratoga. Today’s effort brings his earnings to $232,364.

Now 4, the bay gelding is by the undefeated multiple graded stakes winner Kantharos. His dam, the Lemon Drop Kid mare Sabouli, was trained by Graham from late 2012 until her retirement in 2014, earning both of her wins while here at Herringswell.

Congratulations to Newcal Stable!
