Derby Winner?




Everyone who watched Odysseus dominate at Tampa this week had to be impressed. After keeping an eye out all year this colt is the first three year old colt to impress me. This colt rated kindly and won as the rider pleased under his own courage. The rating gear and the lack of greenness for such a lightly raced horse was especially impressive. Combine those attributes with the ability to go two turns at first asking over a tiring track like Tampa and we may have something special.

He seems to have all the requisite skills and maturity to be a really nice horse. The connections Tom Albertraini and Padua Stables know how to get a horse to the triple crown. Time is their enemy but I think Albertrani can pull off the derby gate with this horse. The Tampa Bay derby is next up for this promising colt.

Maybe Super Saver, or Buddy's Saint.

So far I have not been impressed by these 3 year olds.

Odysseus might have a chance.

Sydney's Candy won the other day at Santa Anita. Sadler wants to bring him to the Big A to run in the Gotham. Might be a good day to take a drive out there.
