Claimer of the Week at AGameofSkill.comA dependable veteran of the Canadian thoroughbred wars was named agameofskill.com Claimer of the Week after taking the fifth race at Woodbine Friday afternoon. Artie Hot, notched his 13th career win with an off the pace effort in the 9 furlong event in Toronto and paid $20.90 to his supporters. The 8 year old gelding was next to last among 14 competitors when the field of $8,000 claimers started down the backstretch on Woodbine’s polytrack. Artie Hot began to move forward and stayed along the rail under the guidance of rider Jesse Campbell. By the time the field entered the stretch the son of Black Minnaloushe was in second and coming after the leader. The Nicholas Gonzalez trainee eagerly went about his work, collared the leader with a furlong remaining and won easily by almost 5 lengths stopping the timer in 1:53.06.  Owned by the Tucci Stables, the tough and consistent campaigner has finished in the money 34 of 73 lifetime races and now has a career bankroll of more than $483,000.  Artie Hot has run 40 times at Woodbine and also holds a very respectable record on the turf as well as polytrack.
