RSS Feeds Monday, June 8, 2015

Coming off a big win in the American Turf S (GII) on Derby Day at Churchill Downs, Divisidero traveled to Belmont Park where he dominated in the Pennine Ridge S. on May 30, 2015. After overcoming some challenges while breaking from the gate, Divisidero and his masterful jockey Rafael Hernandez, made an early move on the outside to trail the pace by 1 1/2 length.  Coming around the final turn Divisidero rushed towards the leaders and overcame Take Over Target in the final moments to win by a neck. He crossed the finish line in 1:48.03, setting a new course record.

 Divisidero, trained by Buff Bradley and owned by Gunpowder Farms, is preparing for the GI Belmont Derby on July 4th, where he will face fierce competition from Bolo, Takeover Target, Startup Nation, and several other European hopefuls.

 Divisidero, bred by Hinkle Farms, now has lifetime earnings of $301,000 with a record of 3-0-1 in 4 starts.
