LONG WEEKEND (c, 2, Majesticperfection–Liza Too {SP, $116,448}, by Olmodavor), pounded down to 8-5 in what appeared to be a loaded baby race, avoided trouble when another foe lost his rider and out-finished that loose horse to win well at first asking. A $225,000 OBSAPR acquisition after a speedy-but-easy :20 3/5 breeze, the bay colt showed four local spins–most recently a 1:00 4/5 (4/23) drill from the gate June 12–in preparation for this first go. Away in about third, Long Weekend soon took over and sped clear. Dennis’ Moment (Tiznow), meanwhile, who was highly touted by trainer Dale Romans in a pre-race interview, was squeezed along the fence and lost rider Robby Albarado. Long Weekend wasn’t seriously threatened from there by anyone aside from the loose horse, who kept on running to finish within about a half length of Long Weekend. Official runner-up Samurai Cause (First Samurai) was five lengths behind the winner. Long Weekend is out of a stakes-placed half-sister to Grade I-winning sprinters Paulassilverlining (Ghostzapper) and Dads Caps (Discreet Cat). Dam Liza Too’s now yearling colt by Ghostzapper was a $300,000 Fasig-Tipton November weanling. Sales history: $225,000 2yo ’19 OBSAPR. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $54,848.
