Description: Call Me George (KY) DK B/, H, foaled March 23, 2010 (Point Given - Sassy Chimes, by Chimes Band) ran down favored Moreno in deep stretch to win his first Graded race, the 9 furlong $400K Grade II New Orleans Handicap at Fair Grounds March 28, 2015. Jockey James Graham notched his 2000th career victory with a move that had this writer wondering if he would ever get there. Call Me George managed to save ground around the first turn while breaking from the outside post as he chased from 4th the pace set by Go Go Rocket. Albano and Moreno were applying mild pressure as they raced up the backstretch. Go Go Rocket gave way as they entered the far turn as Moreno came up to challenge Albano for the lead. Call Me George saved ground around that turn and started to get shuffled back as the field turn for home. Form racing along the rail, James Graham got Call Me George to the outside at the top of the stretch and took out after Moreno. Albano was racing towards the inside in deep stretch, Moreno was in the middle of the track, and Call Me George surged late to get the win by a 1/2 length over Albano who edged Moreno at wire by a head. Call Me George is 6-3-6 from 23 starts and he has earned $415,621. Trainer Grant Foster claimed Call Me George out of an AOC ($62.5K) last May for partners Clint Joiner, Matthew Bond, and Jim Curry. He was bred by Margaux Farm and Barry Irwin. Drawing by Daily Racing Funnies ®.
