Pink Lollipops Graduates
December 29, 2011
Arnold Zetcher’s up-and-coming filly PINK LOLLIPOPS closed out her 3-year-old season with a stylish maiden-breaking victory at Santa Anita today. Trained by Bob Baffert, the filly ran second in a seven-furlong maiden special at Santa Anita in late February and was returning from some time on the sidelines as the hot 4-5 choice in a similar event going six panels. PINK LOLLIPOPS dueled through a first quarter in :21 1/5 and had opened up a 2 1/2-length advantage through a half in an impossible :43 3/5. Despite the wicked pace, she kept on finding more in the stretch and sailed home clear by 4 1/4 lengths. The final time of 1:08 1/5 earned her a 98 BRIS figure.
BT purchased PINK LOLLIPOPS privately on behalf of a client shortly after she RNA’d for $29,000 at the 2009 Keeneland September Sale. She later sold to Zetcher for $110,000 at the OBS April auction. Congratulations to all involved! (Pink Lollipops Chart 12-29-11)
