I Win Again: Maldonado Fits Him Well And Soon To Be Winner

The name doesn’t fit just yet of this two year old colt for Val Brinkerhoff, who is still a maiden after two starts. But he does have two good seconds and ran into a buzz saw on Saturday in this maiden special weight event at five and a half on the main. Off at 9/1 in a field of just 7, he came out running from the four hole under Maldonado, but was pressed every step of the way. He put the other speed away at the ¼ pole, but then here come the odds on favorite up on his outside. He dug in gamely but gave it up at the 1/16th pole. He still finished second and it was a good six lengths back to the 3rd horse. The first quarter was pretty fast for these two year olds in 21.79. He appears to be a soon winner with his speed and may get another race in here at the seaside. Maldonado fits him well.
