2008 TOKYO CITY CUP WINNER

Congratulations to, NAIAGARA CAUSEWAY, for winning this year’s running of the Tokyo City Cup G3 at Santa Anita Park.

Naiagara Causeway stalked the early pace off the rail then bid outside a rival and dueled for the lead, gained the advantage nearing the half mile pole, kicked clear on the final turn and held on gamely under urging. “We inherited the lead going to the far turn and at that point, I just didn’t want to get in his way. I didn’t move on him until we hit the top of the lane and that’s when I pushed the button. The last sixteenth, I was just saying, ’Come on wire.’ Anytime you win, It’s a great distance.” Court said.  Church Service (Jockey: Victor Espinoza) and Big Booster (Jockey: Richard Migliore) finished 2nd and 3rd.
