Peeping Tom captures Moseley




EAST BOSTON -- Flatbird Stable's Peeping Tom stalked a hot pace Saturday to get his first stakes victory in more than a year, beating My Cousin Matt in the $200,000 James B. Moseley Breeders' Cup Handicap at Suffolk Downs.

Making his seventh straight stakes appearance but still lacking a win in stakes company this year for trainer Pat Reynolds, Peeping Tom - the only Grade 1 winner in the field - and jockey Shaun Bridgmohan stalked a hot pace before angling out for the 1 3/4-length victory in 1:10.42 over a fast six furlongs.

"I discussed it with Pat before the race, and we decided it would be best to make one big move," said Bridgmohan. "I was surprised to see My Cousin Matt ahead of me. We knew it was better around the outside than inside, but my horse really kicked it in and ran a great race."

My Cousin Matt and jockey Ramon Dominguez, who won four times on the card, joined the fast 22.17-second pace before the far turn, then took the lead into the stretch, but My Cousin Matt could not hold off Peeping Tom. True Direction, the 7-5 favorite, gained third late over Highway Prospector.

Peeping Tom has now finished no worse than fourth in all of his starts this year. He won the Grade 1 Carter at Aqueduct in 2001.

Bridgmohan won twice on the 14-race Suffolk program. He had been a close runner-up aboard Evening Attire in last year's Massachusetts Handicap.

* Also on the card, Stylish Sultan retained his title as top statebred with an easy win in the $75,000 Massachusetts Thoroughbred Breeders' Championship under Winston Thompson. Dominguez won the other two stakes on the card, with Abderian in the Keith Brodkin Memorial and Devine Wind in the Old Ironsides Stakes.
