This was a video by jockey Abel Castellano, (not Bullet Catcher's jockey) posted today from Laurel, MD, of a horse running South on Route 1 away from Laurel Park racetrack. Bullet Catcher, a 4 year- old Strong Hope son based out of the Jerry Robb stable, apparently decided to dump his rider and see if the grass really was greener somewhere else. He left the track and headed South down Route 1 on a 1.6 mile jaunt that covered parts of Anne Arundel, Howard, and Prince George's counties.
Bullet Catcher was caught and returned to his barn with only a few minor scrapes and abrasions, although his trainer cautions they won't know the full extent of any injuries for a few days. The colt hasa 1-1-1 record in six starts, with earnings totally just under $30,000. He hasn't recorded a win since May of 2011.
Perhaps this was his way of telling his people he needed a chance of venue?
