$75,000 Robert H. Walter Cal Cup Juvenile Fillies SWISS WILD CAT

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (Oct. 30, 2010) – Swiss Wild Cat rallied late along the rail and emerged from a three-horse photo finish as winner of Saturday’s $75,000 Robert H. Walter California Cup Juvenile Fillies at Oak Tree at Hollywood Park.

Swiss Wild Cat was raised and broken at Harris Farms, for her owner Heinz Steinmann.

Swiss Wild Cat is by Ministers Wild Cat, out of the Swiss Yodeler mare I Can Yodele, was bred by owner Heinz Steinmann, was trained by Mike Harrington and ridden by Victor Espinoza, who won the race for the second time.

“It was getting a little bit tight down there but it opened up a little more the last sixteenth and there was plenty of room to get through,” said Espinoza. “Everything worked out perfect. I didn’t think she would have a problem going two turns. It’s funny because I rode her mother before and I won an allowance race with her going long. For that reason I didn’t think she would have any problem today with the distance.”

Swiss Wild Cat has three wins in 10 starts, earnings of $189,552 and was coming off a third in an Oct. 7 allowance. She won at odds of 4-1 by a nose over even-money favorite California Nectar with Warren’s Flyer a head back in third.
