Champions of Champions: Moonist vs Heza Dasha Fire

The match up of the year is upon us. The prestigious Grade I Champion of Champions has two of the biggest stars in the sport of Quarter Horse Racing with Moonist and Heza Dasha Fire. Moonist is the 4-year-old with a record of 20 wins from 29 starts and Heza Dasha Fire is the 3-year-old with 10 wins in 11 starts. They both love to win races. Will somebody else post the upset?


Race 1:  6-3-1

#6 In Control is making his second start off a layoff while also making a drop in class. He's shown good speed in the past and has run well over the nighttime oval.

Race 2:  1-4-3

#1 Big Time Gambler appears to have the speed of the field. A clean break from the rail should make him the one to catch coming down the stretch.

Race 3:  7-8-6

#7 Stossel has encountered some troubled trips in his last few outings. He's been given some time off and all he needs to make an impact is a clean break.

Race 4:  5-7-2

#5 Uno Corona Mas finished a good fourth in his trial outing last time out while facing a sharp winner. He still has room for improvement and the cut back in distance should also help him.

Race 5:  3-1-2

#3 Kimnjet is taking drop in class for a sharp trainer and this gelding has been competitive on the dirt against tougher field in northern California.

Race 6:  3-6-1

#3 Freaking Freckles showed improvement in his first start under the lights despite a slow break. He looks to be in a good spot to get the maiden win.

Race 7:  3-5-6

#3 Reasonable showed some ability earlier in the year before going on a break. She is taking another slight drop in class for owner, trainer and breeder Paul Jones.

Race 8:  4-5-2

#4 Dunright Corona was overmatched in latest trial outing when finishing fifth of eight at a longer distance. Her best efforts have been at today's distance and the return to the maiden ranks should help.

Race 9:  10-7-6-5     The GI Champion of Champions

#10 Heza Dasha Fire has gotten scary good as a 3-year-old. Although he's facing older for the first time, I think his talent is a level above his competition. The outside post position should give him clear running room.

#7 Moonist is another one that has gotten better in 2015. He's got a win at today's distance and that's something Heza Dasha Fire doesn't have it. If HDF makes any mistakes, he better watch out for this guy.

#6 Far Niente is no stranger to winning. He's won 11 of his 22 starts and has defeated Moonist this year. He can jump up with a big effort at any time.

#5 Rock You has improved since arriving to California under the care of Jaime Gomez. He's got the most experience of the group at this distance and this jockey knows him very well.
I watch horses run around.
