Dr. Schivel will bring a five-race win streak into the Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1) after posting a front-running 3 ¼-length victory in the Santa Anita Sprint Championship (G2) on Oct. 2.
Prior to that, Dr. Schivel had aced the Bing Crosby Stakes (G1) for his third victory at Del Mar and an automatic berth into the Breeders’ Cup Sprint which will be held at the seaside track. The 3-year-old took the lead midstretch and held on to win by a neck, beating older rivals and graded-stakes winners Eight Rings, Brickyard Ride and C Z Rocket, who finished second in last year’s Sprint. Dr. Schivel is owned by Red Baron’s Barn, Rancho Temescal, Reeves Thoroughbred Racing and William Branch.
“This is a real racehorse,” trainer Mark Glatt said after the Bing Crosby. “He beat the olders today, and hopefully in November he’ll be able to do it again.”
The bay colt earned Glatt his second Grade 1 victory. His first was in the previous Bing Crosby with Collusion Illusion. Dr. Schivel was transferred to Glatt’s barn after winning the Runhappy Del Mar Futurity in his final race as a 2-year-old. After the Futurity, he was given some time off, and he spent time at co-owner Tim Cohen’s Rancho Temescal.
"He's very classy," Cohen said. "We turned him out at the farm. He let down easily. A good horse will take care of himself like that. He was fun to have at the farm. He has a little character, and it was a blast to have him."
