Texas stallion Expect a Lot got his stallion career off to a nice start on March 8 as his first starter, Awesome Sunset, scored a 1 ¼-length victory in his career debut in a maiden special weight race at Sam Houston Race Park.
The 3-year-old filly was bred by Eureka Thoroughbred Farm and runs for Mike Grossman, who also owns and stands Expect a Lot at Eureka in Fredericksburg, Texas. Iram Diego rode the Texas-bred to victory for trainer Francisco Bravo in a time of 1:13.13 for six furlongs.
Although unraced, Expect a Lot sports a powerful pedigree as a son of Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) winner Awesome Again out of the Cee’s Tizzy mare Tizamazing.
Expect a Lot is a full brother to Preakness Stakes (G1) winner and Belmont Stakes (G1) runner-up Oxbow, and his dam is a full sister to two-time Breeders’ Cup Classic winner and top stallion Tiznow and $2.8 million earner Budroyale.
Expect a Lot stands for a $2,000 fee.
