Daily Racing Form National Digital Edition - - News - By Ron Gierkink

ETO­BI­COKE, On­tario – The first trip to Wood­bine for Mary­land-based Global Ac­cess proved to be fruit­ful, and the son of Gi­ant’s Cause­way re­turns for his stakes de­but in Satur­day’s $100,000 Dis­play, a 1 1/16-mile test for 2-year-olds.

Global Ac­cess showed noth­ing af­ter break­ing awk­wardly when de­but­ing in a dirt sprint at Parx on Sept. 29. He was 25-1 in his sec­ond race, which came go­ing long in maiden spe­cial com­pany here on Oct. 31, and over­came a trou­bled trip to win from off the pace un­der Gary Boulanger.

win­ner March to the Arch, who won an al­lowance route on the lo­cal Tapeta in June.

“I re­ally wanted to start him on the grass, but we had a real rainy sea­son, and I didn’t have any luck get­ting him in,” Trom­betta said. “I ran him on the dirt to get a race un­der him, and he re­ally doesn’t train too good on the dirt. How­ever, he does train very good on the syn­thetic. Af­ter I got a race un­der him, we took him [to Wood­bine]. Af­ter an event­ful trip, he was able to able to win. March to the Arch was suc­cess­ful on [Tapeta], and hope­fully it runs in the fam­ily.”

A field of nine was drawn for the Dis­play, which goes as the eighth on an 11-race card.
