Double Touch Impressive for Blacker

Three Year Old European import Double Touch produced a breathtaking performance to go from last to first in a strong allowance event at Santa Anita Park over a mile on the turf course.  The Dan Blacker trainee was starting for the first time since being gelded and the gear changed appeared to have the desired effect with a very patient ride from hall of fame rider Gary Stevens, the flashy chestnut who was still last at the 1/4 pole stormed down the outside to score an ultra impressive win.  Dan indicated following the race that he will aim up at the three year old turf stakes races at Del Mar for his great group of owners.  Double Touch was purchased by Boomer at the 2016 Tattersalls Horses In-Training Sale for 70,000 Gns.
