Golden Gate Fields
El Camino Real Derby
Distance: 1 and 1/8 miles
Whoa! Greetings from my barn in Georgia with colder weather and Pudge’s barn in Manheim in the frozen tundra! Boy babee it sure is cold but the Road to the Roses is really heating us up!!! HOW ABOUT THE METABOSS! Whoa!! Pudge and I are very impressed.
Metaboss a maiden winner now has won a beauty of a race in graded stakes company. This race was amazing to put it simply. This promising powerhouse of a colt came on through the stretch and just left his rivals in the cloud of dust he created and he kicked on for home. Derby contender for sure and now with 10 points on the board we are really hoping for a showdown in this year’s Derby! No doubt about it. We are believers! Pudge is still chatting on about his race as am I. We LUVD it!! Congratulations too all connections and we hope you enjoy the road to the gates in May.
The place was determined by a photo finish and the place went to a nice horse who is also very talented, Cross the Line and the race favorite Conquest Typhoon took the show. Harmonic was 4th. A really nice race, exciting to say the least and powerful to say the most. Those come from behind performances will leave me breathless every time and this was no exception.
Metaboss has been making some noise in horse racing circles after his last win too. His connections are just so proud and his fan base will keep growing with these shows he’s putting on. The task for the gate in the Derby is not easy but it is wonderful to watch these young horses prepare and make their way closer week after week. It just gets more exciting!
