Indispensable: Sadler Should Find Winning Spot Within The Month

Newly turned three year old colt for John Sadler made the 4th start of his career on Monday in a maiden special weight event for sophomores at a flat mile on the main. Off at 4/1 in a field of just five, he broke a step slow under Kimura and was 4th into the clubhouse turn. The jock moved him to the fence down the back side and he was just three back at the half mile pole. The problem was Baffert had the heavy favorite on a lonely lead at this point in the race, and though this son of Constitution tried hard to get near him, he never got closer than one length of him at the 1/8 pole, and then the favorite found another gear to win by two and a half. But Indispensable ran a good race just the same and fought the race shape all the way around the track. This was his first shot with Lasix as well and this $825,000 Keeneland purchase is about ready to break his maiden. Look for Sadler to find a winning spot in the next four weeks.
