The Thoroughbred Record, February 17, 1962
 

Florida Report by Russ Harris
 

PEDIGREE       RACE RECORD       SOME OF INTENTIONALLY'S OFFSPRING

TRAINER JOHN NERUD      AFORETHOUGHT & TERRESTO

 

 
 
Although Intentionally amassed earnings of $589,521 performing in the silks of Baltimorean Harry Isaacs, the six-year-old son of Intent - My Recipe, by Discovery, had not raced in Florida until January 24 [1962] when he went to the post in the colors of Tartan Stable in an allowance race on the Hialeah turf.

Intentionally wound up a disappointing fourth behind Winonly, Gordian Knot and Captain Kidd II, and in auspicious debut in the Sunshine State for a horse destined to become a stallion at Ocala. But the Hialeah grass course, though listed as "firm," was much slower than usual; both Winonly and Staretta (who won on the grass an hour earlier) required 1:07 to accomplish the 5-1/2 furlongs. Intentionally undoubtedly didn't like the footing (he's run on a turf course three times and never finished in the money), and perhaps needed a race, too, since his last outing had been in the 1-1/4-mile Trenton Handicap last autumn at Garden State.

Whatever the cause of Intentionally's slow beginning in Florida, he came back to make amends in no uncertain manner.

Steaming off the pace in the upper stretch, he grabbed the lead from pacesetting Beau Admiral and then staved off a late rush by Dorchester Farm's Carry Back to win the seven-furlong Palm Beach Handicap under 126 pounds on January 31.

Yet, although Intentionally won the race, most of the tribute afterward was rendered to the popular native son, Carry Back, who had closed nearly seven lengths in the stretch run, in his first outing of the season. Just a bit more distance seemed all Carry Back needed.

That extra distance was available in the next meeting between the pair, the 1-1/8-mile Seminole Handicap February 10, and last year's Kentucky Derby winner went off a 3-to-4 favorite while Intentionally was made second choice at 7-to-2.

The Seminole, which replaced the McLennan on Hialeah's stakes schedule this season, grossed $62,300 with 10 starters and drew one of the best winter handicap fields in recent years.

Carry Back was the top weight with 127 pounds, picking up three pounds off his effort in the shorter Palm Beach, while Intentionally kept the same package, 126 pounds. Intentionally, who is co-holder of the world record for the mile (1:33-1/5) with the brilliant Swaps won the Quaker City Handicap at 1-1/8 miles last year but generally has been more effective at a mile or less.

The Seminole was billed as Intentionally's farewell to the turf, but its outcome almost postponed the black horse's retirement. He bagged the Hialeah headliner so easily that trainer John Nerud conceded after the race, "The way that son-of-a-gun won today, there's still some chance  we might run him in the Widener." (It was announced later that he would be retired immediately, however.)

Completing the nine furlongs on a fast but dull racing strip in 1:48-2/5, Intentionally reached the wire eight coasting lengths ahead of Carry Back, who closed with his usual determination but failed to menace the waltzing winner.

Calumet Farm's Yorky, winner of the McLennan (as well as the Royal Palm and Widener) last winter, finished a half-length behind Carry Back. Alamode Farm's Vapor Whirl was the same margin farther back, in fourth place. After that came Calumet's Beau Prince (an entry with Yorky), Peter Fuller's Hillsborough, Robert Lehman's Ambiopoise, Ogden Phipps's Hitting Away, Jacob Sher's Sherluck and Walnut Hill Farm's Zumbador II.

Intentionally was beautifully ridden by Manuel Ycaza, who flew in from California for the race and also to ride Cain Hoy Stables's Dead Ahead in a prep for the Flamingo.... "A wonderful ride," Ycaza declared of Intentionally. "He did everything I asked of him."

Nerud's instructions to the talented Panamanian were brief. "All I told him was to beat 'em all to the (first) turn, and then your're on your own," John explaned. "If somebody wants to go out and set the pace down the backside, let 'em."

Ycaza followed orders, with finesse. Intentionally, breaking from the number three post position, outran Vapor Whirl and Bill Hartack ...and clicked off early fractions of :23 and :46-1/5 while maintaining a narrow lead over the Alamode Farm colt.

Through the first half Ambiopoise was third, daylight behind the top pair, while Hitting Away was an astonishingly remote fourth. Hitting Away, who had won the Royal Palm from end to end in an impressive display of speed, was handicapped by being in the number 10 post for the Seminole. But the son of Ambiorix - Striking, War Admiral. was actually outrun going to the first bend by none other than Carry Back!

Forced wide on the initial turns, Hitting Away made no impression on the leaders, which perhaps is the best explanation of the ease with which Intentionally won the Seminole. Vapor Whirl, after all, had been unable to stay with Hitting Away in the Royal Palm, and it was no surprise that he couldn't match strides with Intentionally.

It could be, too, that Carry Back doesn't want to be as close to the early pace as he was in the Seminole. However, jockey John Sellers let the famed son of Saggy ease back to seventh and eighth position heading down the backstretch. Near the far turn, last year's three-year-old champion moved willingly along the rail -- also not his custom as he usually has been brought to the outside -- but it was obvious even at he half-mile pole that he had little or no chance of catching Intentionally that day.

After six furlongs in 1:10-2/5, Intentionally was a length and a half ahead of Vapor Whirl and beginning to draw away, Ambiopoise and Hitting Away were fading, and Intentionally was on the lead all along and lovely -- at least to his partisans.

Five lengths ahead of Vapor Whirl at the furlong pole, Intentionally widened his advantage through the last eighth while Carry Back -- in tight quarters on the inside -- came between horses for his belated rally.

Yorky also finished well to gain the show award and it was the best performance in several months for the five-year-old son of Bull Lea, who suffered a fractured hoof after winning the Widener last year. While Yorky still looms as a threat in the forthcoming Widener, Beau Prince "came back a bit sore." Racing Form chart-caller Bud Lyon reported in his footnotes.

Trainer Jack Price, who had announced plans to syndicate Carry Back the day before the Seminole, could only say, "I'm glad John Nerud is going to retire that black horse."

However, it was hard to believe that Intentionally could pass up the $100,000-added Widener after such a comfortable decision over his main rivals in the Seminole. William L. McKnight, owner of Tartan Stable and head of the syndicate that purchased Intentionally this winter, said the decision on whether the horse races again is up to Nerud, but added, "I'd like to see him run again."

Mr. Nerud planned to fly to Ocala to check on mares scheduled to be bred to Intentionally. If the breeding schedule permitted, the son of Intent would probably start in the Widener. If he starts, it will probably be as favorite. (Upon returning from Ocala, Mr. Nerud announced that Intentionally would be retired immediately.)
