RSS Feeds Monday, May 4, 2015

In a stellar performance on Saturday at Churchill Downs, Divisidero unleashed a late surge of speed to overtake the others in the final stretch of the GII American Turf S.  The Hinkle Farms bred colt trailed near the back of field until jockey Rafael Hernandez asked him to pick up the pace as they turned for home.  Divisidero crossed the finish line with a time of 1:41.59, winning by 3/4 of a length.  After the race trainer Buff Bradley remarked: "He's an awesome horse.  He's professional already and it's just his third race.  It's unbelievable." 

After finishing third in the GIII Palm Beach S. when he got into traffic trouble after the eighth pole, Divisidero was overlooked in the morning line with 20-1 odds but was eventually bet down to 8-1.

Divisidero now boasts a lifetime record of 3-2-0-1 with earnings of 181,000. 

Congratulations to all of the connections!  We can't wait to see what's next!
