BENSALEM, PA – Canadian shipper Pumpkin Rumble surged from off the pace to win the $104,850 Alphabet Soup Handicap by a 1/2-length in course-record time under Luis Saez Saturday at Parx Racing.
The 8-year-old gelding by English Channel, making his first start in the U.S. for trainer Kevin Attard in the first of seven stakes on the Pennsylvania Derby Day card, won in 1:40.21 for the 1 1/16 miles on the firm turf. Whatever For set the previous course mark of 1:40.40 in June 1986.
Pumpkin Rumble, the 6/5 favorite in the field of seven, improved to 10-for-45 with the victory. Saratoga Jack finished second and 2 lengths ahead of Taxable Goods.
Assistant trainer Denton Ebanks: “Beautiful race, we’re happy to win. He’s a beautiful horse to work with. We came in Friday morning and our expectations were to win. Great ride from Luis.”
Jockey Luis Saez: “It was amazing. We broke perfect and we saved ground. I didn’t know where we were going to go because everyone was moving everywhere. We stayed on the rail, and, thank God, we did. He finished strong and I am very happy with how he ran.”
Pumpkin Rumble returned $4.40 to win, $2.80 to place, and $2.10 to show. Saratoga Jack brought back $4.40 to place and $3 to show, while Taxable Goods paid $3 to show.
