Patricias Hope LLC’s Florida-bred Uncashed went wire-to-wire while dominating four other 3-year-olds in the $49,000 Golden Circle at Prairie Meadows Saturday night, winning by eight-and-a-half lengths in 1:10.13 over six furlongs.
Trained by Larry Rivelli, Uncashed has now won four of five career starts including three consecutive races while winning his first stakes. His only defeat came in his second career start when second to Hand Party in a first level, $62,500 optional claiming going six furlongs at Hawthorne in the final start of his 2-year-old campaign. In his two previous races this year, he won a five-and-a-half furlong non-winners of two allowance by five-and-a-quarter lengths on April 20 and a non-winners of three allowance by nearly three lengths after six furlongs on May 7, both at Hawthorne. He won on debut last year by 11 ½ lengths against special weight maidens at Louisiana Downs going six furlongs on Sept. 13 when trained by Tina Hurley.
Ridden by Orlando Mojica from post three, Uncashed broke best of all and took a short lead out of the six furlong chute while racing to the inside of Arizona Andrew between horses and Call Me Ice Man on the outside. Uncashed took a two-length lead into the turn and extended that margin to three lengths past the quarter-pole to finish the half-mile in :44.71. He continued to extend that lead down the stretch to dominate in his stakes debut with Ocean of Storms finishing second, two-and-a-half lengths ahead of Kyandi in third. Arizona Andrew and Call Me Ice Man completed the order of finish. Florida-bred Toddchero was scratched.
Uncashed was sent to the post as the 1-5 favorite and paid $2.60 to win.
