Promising Filly CambierParc Sharp Maiden Winner Wednesday
Patternrecognition ‘Doing Super’ Ahead of Pegasus World Cup (G1)
Rainbow 6 Carryover Grows to $49,991 for Thursday

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – A new year and a new surface proved to be the right combination for OXO Equine’s CambierParc, a $1.25 million daughter of multiple Grade 1 winner Medagliad’Oro who broke her maiden by four lengths Wednesday at Gulfstream Park.

Ridden by Jose Ortiz for trainer Chad Brown, and favored at 6-5 in a field of 12, CambierParc ($4.60) ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:41.48 over a firm turf course in the $50,000 maiden special weight for 3-year-old fillies.

It was the second career start for CambierParc, having run fourth by three lengths sprinting 6 1/2 furlongs on the dirt Nov. 3 at Aqueduct after going unraced as a 2-year-old.

“It was a great win,” trainer Chad Brown said. “The horse has always showed a lot of promise, and we finally got her on the right surface. The owner, Larry Best, is here today and I’m happy he got a nice win here with a promising filly. He’s been real patient with her and it looks like her future is on turf.”

Breaking from Post 8, CambierParc found herself in a tight pack of horses heading into the first turn and settled in fifth between horses as 35-1 long shot Dance and Dance ran the opening quarter-mile in 22.69 seconds pressed by Smack. Ortiz had CambierParc in the clear three wide down the backside after a half in 46.44 and began to launch a bid around the far turn. Smack forged a short lead at the top of the stretch but was unable to hold off the winner’s surge to her outside.

“She got squeezed a little bit at the start and I was happy Jose used her a little bit early to gain position. We talked about that if she broke a little slow; she did that in her first start, as well,” Brown said. “Once she got into a good spot down the backside, she took it from there.”

Brown said he will wait to see how CambierParc comes out of the race before deciding on a next start.

“I’ll speak to Mr. Best about it and just go from there,” he said. “It was just nice to break her maiden and put her on track for a nice career.”

Brown said Cigar Mile (G1) winner Patternrecognition will have his next work this weekend at Palm Meadows, Gulfstream’s satellite training facility in Palm Beach County, as he continues preparations for a scheduled start in the $9 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1) Jan. 26.

Klaravich Stables and William H. Lawrence’s Patternrecognition won each of his last three starts of 2018 including the Kelso Handicap (G2) Sept. 22 at Belmont Park prior to his three-quarter-length triumph over fellow Pegasus contender True Timber in the Cigar Mile Dec. 1 at Aqueduct.

“He’s doing super,” Brown said. “He’s been working every week since he got here and he’ll work again this weekend.”

Patternrecognition had two works at Palm Meadows last month, breezing a half-mile in 48.45 seconds Dec. 22 and five furlongs in a bullet 1:00 Dec. 30, fastest of 18 horses.
