One Famous Glass (One Famous Eagle – Quick Glass, Royal Quick Dash)
Ajax Downs – October 8, 2013 – by John Moorehouse
The 2013 campaign has been a very good year for One Famous Glass. The colt posted the 6th victory of his sophomore season on Oct. 8 at Ajax Downs, leading at every call of the $43,247 Ontario Jackpot Derby.
After posting a 1-3-1 record as a two-year-old, One Famous Glass has been to the winner’s circle in six of his eight starts in 2013. That includes a pair of victories in stakes company, also finishing first in the All Canadian Derby held in July at Ajax.
Carol Robertson, Jaime Robertson and Dr. Charles Hall own One Famous Glass, and collected an $18,404 payday for this victory that improved the gelding’s total earnings to $95,051.
Bryn Robertson trains One Famous Glass, who broke sharply from the inside starting gate in a 7-horse field and took control of the race from there. The colt opened a 1/2-length lead by the 1st call. What Ta Wear narrowed the gap to a neck as the two horses entered the stretch, but One Famous Glass withstood the challenge, winning the race by that same margin. Marty Mercieca was in the irons as One Famous Glass completed the 350-yard trip in :17.640, registering a 97 speed index.
Burnett Ranches LLC bred both One Famous Glass and his dam, Quick Glass, a 2000 mare who won 2 of 14 outs before becoming a broodmare. One Famous Glass is the only stakes winner out of his dam, but 1/2-sister Eyesa Quick is stakes placed. Quick Glass has produced 7 foals, all starters, and 4 are winners.
Renee Wilson owns & trains What Ta Wear (Game Patriot-Stoli Wear), who was 2nd under Daniel Rose. First Down The Track (Corona Cartel-First Down Runner) was 3rd under Brian Bell for Richard Wincikaby and DK Training Centre, and trainer Kim Ito. Followed by Corderoy Road (Rock Solid Jess-Reckless Wish), Charted By DM (DM Selexus-Shake The Chart), Caraways Mr Mr Lane (Sycamore Lane-Caraways Misty Moon) & Run Madison Run (Ivory James-Shesa Cash Snatcher).
