DEL MAR, CA – Thomsen Racing’s Loud Mouth made plenty of noise as he pulled off a 13/1 upset in Sunday’s $100,000 Cary Grant Stakes at Del Mar.
Loud Mouth broke from post 9 under Abel Cedillo and settled into a three-wide position tracking just off the right flank of the even-money favorite Galilean.
Just ahead of them, Bettor Trip Nick set opening fractions of :22.13 and :44.94 before quickly dropping anchor once Take the One O One headed him in the far turn.
Take the One O One held a decent advantage off the far turn, but Loud Mouth stayed true to his task and gradually wore him down in the stretch.
Sliding past inside the 1/16 pole, the Steve Knapp trainee crossed 3/4 of a length the best while completing the 7-furlong fast dirt sprint in 1:22.34.
“I could tell they were going fast up front, but I had my eye on the favorite,” Cedillo said. “I was tracking him. When he made his move (on the turn), I moved with him, then I went by him in the straight and went after the leader. My horse had it and we got him.”
Take the One O One was 3 1/2 lengths clear of Rookie Mistake, who nailed Galilean for third by a 1/2-length.
El Tigre Terrible, Oliver, and an empty Bettor Trip Nick completed the order of finish.
Appreciated, Brickyard Ride, and Surfing Star were scratched from the race restricted to California-breds.
Loud Mouth’s win was his second straight following a 4-length romp against optional claimers at Santa Anita Park last month and improved his overall record to 22-6-0-2. The 4-year-old Boisterous colt – claimed for $40k from his breeder in July 2019 – has now earned $246,410.
“I kept experimenting with him to find out what and how far he wanted to run,” Knapp said. “He got some real questionable rides, several of them, but I knew this horse could run. We went the 7 (furlongs) today and it worked out and he ran huge. This horse has a big heart, and when he gets to the lead or gets close, he runs, and he’s got a really nice way of moving. He’s a runner and this is a hell of a win.”
Loud Mouth returned $28 to win, $10.60 to place, and $7 to show. Take the One O One brought back $4.80 to place and $3.60 to show, while Rookie Mistake paid $6.80 to show.
