New York Watch - The Lumber Guy

The Lumber Guy was more than OK on January 28 at Aqueduct Racetrack as he skipped and jumped clear to a 9 ¼-length debut victory against eight maiden New York-bred 3-year-olds. Leaving from post position 2, The Lumber Guy wasted no time getting to the front, leading by 1 ½ lengths two furlongs into the race with an opening fraction of 22.79 seconds and widening his advantage to two lengths through a half in 46.12. He was never shown the whip in the lane by jockey Jose Valdivia, Jr. as he pulled clear from Smarty Julips, who chased the winner in second from start to finish. The Lumber Guy, a gray colt by Grand Slam, received a Beyer Speed Figure of 90 for having completed six furlongs in 1:10.20. The performance was similar to the 6 ½-length maiden win Bold Deed, a half-brother to The Lumber Guy, posted in a six-furlong dash at Aqueduct last March in his second start. In three starts since earning his diploma, Bold Deed won the one-mile Packett's Landing overnight stakes for New York-breds in April, finished fifth in the Grade 2 Peter Pan, and second in the NYSS Spectacular Bid. Like Bold Deed, The Lumber Guy is a homebred trained by Michael Hushion for owner Barry Schwartz.
