Frank Lucarelli, who lives in Enumclaw, made another trip to the winner’s circle Sunday to take the win picture with unbeaten 2-year-old Trackattacker.
The Washington-bred gelding by Harbor the Gold won the six-furlongs stakes in dominating fashion, leading shortly after the break and extending his lead to the finish line.
After the race Lucarelli said he initially wasn’t sure if the gelding was as good as his multiple stakes winner Gallant Son, who was also undefeated as a 2-year-old at Emerald Downs and won the Gottstein Futurity.
Jockey Leslie Mawing told Lucarelli after working the gelding he was potentially better than Gallant Son.
Lucarelli said now he thinks Trackattacker may be equal or better than Gallant Son.
Trackattacker’s next race will likely be the Gottstein Futurity Sept. 28.
Owner of Trackattacker is R.E.V. Racing, Roy and Ellie Schaefer, Port Orchard.
