Calculator takes Santa Anita’s Sham Stakes

Richard C. Pell’s Calculator broke his maiden in style on Saturday at Santa Anita, charging to the lead on the turn and drawing away in the stretch, taking the $100,750 Sham Stakes (G3) by 4-1/4 lengths. Fellow OBS graduate Pioneerof the West (August ’13) settled for third. Sent off as the odds on choice in the Sham after strong efforts against Eclipse Award finalists American Pharoah and Texas Red in his final starts at two, the 3-year-old Florida-bred colt by In Summation is now 5-1-2-1 and has earned $193,500. He was purchased for $132,000 by trainer Peter Miller from breeder Ocala Stud at the 2014 OBS April Sale after turning in a quarter in :21 1/5 at the Under Tack Show. watch his under tack video
