Yougottawanna wires 2004 Seabiscuit Handicap at Bay Meadows

Yougottawanna had quite the seesaw career. As a 2-year-old, he stunned Officer with an upset win in the 2001 California Cup Juvenile. He lost his next three starts, then defeated Danthebluegrassman and stablemate Cappuchino in the Grade 3 El Camino Real Derby. He missed nearly a year of racing after the El Camino, and lost 11 consecutive races after his return. He ended the losing streak with an eight-length victory in an option claiming race, from which he was claimed for $50000 John F. Martin. Jerry Hollendorfer took him back for $80000 two starts later and wheeled him back in the Grade 3 Seabiscuit Handicap at Bay Meadows on Memorial Day 2004. In the Seagiscuit, Yougottawanna set a fast pace and turned back stablemate Gold Ruckus to register a 3/4-length victory under jockey Russell Baze. Yougottawanna posted a repeat victory in the 2005 Seabiscuit.
