Another Grade 1 win for LAVA MAN

6/10/06 – $300,000 Charles Whittingham Memorial Hcp (Grade 1).
1 1/4 Miles Turf.

The track announcer said he was soaring like an eagle…. a bald eagle….and the high flying LAVA MAN earned a 108 Beyer in the process, giving him back-to-back turf wins and back-to-back 108 Beyers…the highest for any turf horse this year!

LAVA MAN enjoyed an easy trip cruising in front but said no to a challenge from King’s Drama leaving the final turn.  Lava Man kicked into high gear and seemed to relish the chance to perform for his fans clocking the final quarter in :23 flat.

Lifetime: 31-11-7-3 $2,454,706.
