Del Mar, CA (November 27, 2020) – Tigre Di Slugo took his career record to three wins in five starts with his victory in the 8thh race at Del Mar, a $74,306 allowance going six furlongs over the fast main track.
The gelded son of Smiling Tiger was initially hampered by a poor start from the inside post. He tracked the leaders down the backstretch and began to close around the turn. Moving out at the top of the stretch, he closed strongly, blowing past the leader and opening up to win by a length and one-quarter.
Tigre Di Slugo races for Slugo Racing, Tiger Racing, Inc., and his trainer Mike Puype. Bred in California by Premier Thoroughbreds, he is out of the multiple graded stakes-placed Williamstown mare, Erica’s Smile. He takes his lifetime earnings to $120,320.
