Raging Daoust will try for his first stakes victory in Saturday’s Grade 3 $150,000 Salvator Mile. Conditioned by Buddy Carlesimo, Raging Daoust is coming off of a win at Monmouth in his last race where he edged out his opponent by a nose in a six furlong optional claiming event.

            “He sure seems to like Monmouth,” said Carlesimo of Raging Daoust, who is an impressive five for six in Oceanport, and has racked up $111,300 of his $183,203 in lifetime earnings in those six races here.


            A 4-year-old gelding by Kafwain out of Champagne Forever, Raging Daoust has worked twice since his win at Monmouth on June 8. He breezed a bullet five furlongs in 1:00 4/5 on June 23 where he was the best of 11 that day, and he most recently breezed four furlongs in :49 1/5 on June 29.    

            “He’s doing great,” Carlesimo said. “A mile should be a good distance for him. It’s his third race off the layoff so he should improve. We’ve been pointing toward this race for a while.”        

            A James Costabile Jr. and Ronald Juliano color-bearer, Raging Daoust will be up against tough competition on Saturday as he competes against the likes of Bowman’s Beast and Lucy’s Bob Boy, both of which have never finished worse than second in their five and 16 race careers, respectively.   

            Jockey Victor Santiago gets the mount on Raging Daoust in the Salvator Mile, which goes as race 10 on Saturday’s 12-race card.
