Fury Kapcori keeps rolling in G3 Precisionist
Sunday, May 04, 2014
Tiznow's Fury Kapcori continues to prove himself one of the best handicap horses on the West Coast, winning Saturday's $100,000 Precisionist S. (G3) for his fourth consecutive victory and setting himself up for a possible run at the $500,000 Gold Cup (G1) June 28 at Santa Anita Park

Fury Kapcori started his streak on New Year's Day, winning an allowance race, then coming back five weeks later to do the same. He then stepped up in class to capture the $100,750 Santana Mile S. on March 30.

In the 1 1/16-mile Precisionist, Fury Kapcori got to the lead and the rail going into the first turn with a powerful early move from post position six. Under the strong hold of Rafael Bejarano, the eventual winner cut out a half mile in :46.48. Bejarano let him out a bit on the turn, and Fury Kapcori pulled away from the field with ease, galloping contently through the stretch to hit the wire in 1:42.11, winning by 5 3/4-lengths.

“Last year, we were a little bit disappointed (with some of last year's results),” said trainer Jerry Hollendorfer's assistant Dan Ward. “But when you look back, they were all good races and he just likes this track. He’s maturing, like it’s (Santa Anita’s main track) his now.
“That’s why we didn’t go to Oaklawn (for the G1 Oaklawn H. on Apr. 12), and that’s why we didn’t go to the Alysheba (G2 stakes, also run Saturday at Churchill Downs) because we’re pointing to this series here—the Precisionist, the Californian (G2, May 31) and the Gold Cup.”
Owned by Rick Awtrey, George Todaro and Hollendorfer, the 4-year-old colt picked up $60,000 for the win, increasing his earnings to $479,880. He overall record now stands at 14-6-4-1.

Hollendorfer picked up Fury Kapcori, who is full brother to Grade 2 winner Tizfiz, out of the 2011 Keeneland September Yearling sale for $100,000.

Tiznow, a perennial top-10 sire, is once again in that category in 2014, with progeny earnings topping the $2.6 million mark.
