Zippy Gizmo won the Bull Page Stakes Sept. 24 at Woodbine and gave his sire, Amis Gizmo, his first blacktype stakes winner.
The 2-year-old chestnut won his second career race in four starts by edging rival Brave Dancer by a neck in 1:22.77 on the turf.
It was a come-from-behind triumph that saw Zippy Gizmo running last in the field of six. A half mile into the seven-furlong run, Zippy Gizmo with Kazushi Kimura in the irons, found a seam at the top of the lane.
With his jockey’s encouragement, Zippy Gizmo split rivals and accelerated with a furlong left to go. He did just enough to eek out the win.
Zippy Gizmo, homebred by Ivan Dalos’ Tall Oaks Farm in Ontario, Canada, is trained by Kevin Attard. He improved to 2-0-0 from four starts and has a bankroll of $75,418.
