Coach Prime: Prat May Have a 2024 Derby Horse Here

Two year old colt for Bob Baffert made his 2nd career start but 1st on the main track Friday in a one mile maiden special weight. Off as the wagering choice at 7/5 in a field of 10 under Prat, he broke OK from the 9 hole and was fifth into the clubhouse turn and about five back of the leaders down the back side. Prat moved him to the fence at the 1/4 pole and was within two lengths of the leaders, found a seam at the top of the lane, and the “Coach” went through the hole without being asked, then kicked clear at the 1/8 pole winning by 8 while being geared down. Prat hardly asked him for any run the entire race. The fractions were quick early but this performance was visually impressive. I know it’s early, but if Baffert can keep this one in one piece, Prat may have a Derby horse for 2024. Up the ladder.
