Amis Gizmo earned a nose victory in his Sept. 2 debut and reeled off a pair of open-length stakes victories in this venue’s six-furlong Bull Page S. and seven-panel Frost King S. Sept. 27 and Nov. 4, respectively. He wrapped up 2015 with a 1 3/4-length tally in the restricted Kingarvie S. Nov. 28. Returning from nearly five months on the bench, the chestnut suffered his first defeat when fifth against open company in the Wando S. Apr. 24, but bounced back nicely in this prep for the July 3 Queen’s Plate S. Settling near the rear of a six-horse pack behind a legitimate pace of :23.98 and :48.16, the chestnut moved in tandem with 4-5 chalk Shakhimat (Lonhro {Aus}) on the far turn under a confident Luis Contreras, who peeked back to look for challengers nearing the top of the stretch. Surging past Shakhimat soon after that, Amis Gizmo came home under a drive to score by two lengths over the favorite. The winner is a half to Ami’s Flatter (Flatter), who took fifth in Saturday’s GI Metropolitan H. “We found he had a little bit of a problem [after the Wando] and there was an excuse for him to run as bad as he did,” said owner/breeder Ivan Dalos. “So now that we’ve got it figured out, we’re back in business. I was surprised (at how easily he won) because Shakhimat is a really nice horse, so to beat him the way we did means something.”
