Cherubim (c, 2, Henny Hughes–Wings of an Angel, by Cherokee Run)
was a non-factor eighth on debut at Betfair Hollywood Park behind impressive debut winner Indianapolis (Medaglia d’Oro) going six panels over the synthetic Nov. 24. Dismissed at 20-1 in this hot maiden, the bay pressed the pace from second just outside the leader through an opening quarter in :21.56. He seized command from that point on clocking a half-mile in :44.06. Cherubim had daylight on the field at the top of the stretch and cruised a home to score by a definitive 4 1/2 lengths over Chelios (Distorted Humor). The final time for this six-furlong event was 1:08.56. Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-0, $33,850. Click for the brisnet.com chart or VIDEO.
