Ecliptical Jack (Claiming Partnership) broke his maiden at Parx on Monday setting a pressured pace and then shaking clear to win by 2 1/2 lengths. Breaking from the 3rd post Ecliptical Jack bumped with Thorn Hill cat leaving the gate, dueled in the three path, regained the lead for good near the quarter pole and drew off under mild handling. Ecliptical Jack was claimed from us out of this race.
We spoke with trainer Steve Klesaris after the race and Steve said, “He ran well for us today. He’s been knocking on the door and it was just a matter of time before he’d win this race. He’s an excellent money earner.”
We also spoke with Hibiscus Stables CEO Mike Oliveto after the race. Mike said, “It’s great to see this horse finally get his diploma. He’s been a steady earner for the partners and, with the PA-bred bonus, this was a nice payday for them. I’m sorry to see him get claimed but we close the books on a horse that turned a bottom line profit for the partners and that’s the name of the game.”
Ecliptical Jack earned $25,200 for Mondays’ win.
