Call Paul won the six furlong race by six lengths under a hand ride for his fourth stakes win.

"We were there," said Patterson, who split the Pa-bred breeders award of $11,500 with Schowe.

This was the second Pa-bred breeders award Patterson and Schowe received, having split the $12,000 breeders award when Call Pall won the Pennsylvania Nursery Stakes at Parx last December.


PATTERSON and Schowe still have Call Paul's dam, and she continues to produce for them.

"We sold his 2-year-old half-sister by El Padrino," said Patterson. "Her name in Pink Caddy, and she's at Parx, trained by Randy Allen, and they love her."

"His yearling half-brother by Bullsbay is with Marshall Silverman to be sold this fall," said Patterson. "Avani Force has an Uncle Lino colt by her side, and she's in foal to Tapizar.

After breaking his maiden at Delaware Park last July, Call Paul won the G2 Saratoga Special in August, finished third in the G1 Champagne Stakes at Belmont last October, won the Nursery Stakes in December,, won the G3 Swale Stakes at Gulfstream in February and then finished third in the G3 Bay Shore Stakes at Aqueduct April 6 and second in the Gold Fever Stakes at Belmont on May 12.


MOTION, who trains at Fair Hill, saddled Madaket Stables' Secret Message to win the G2 $175,000 Nassau Stake for Fillies and Mares 3 year olds and up at Woodbine on May 26.

Secret Messge, by Hat Trick out of a Gone West mare, won the 1 mile turf race by 3/4 length .

She raced mid-pack early in the race, was two and three wide through the turn, found a clear path to close steadily and got up late under a drive.
