Make Music for Me is a maiden with healthy Derby earnings

    I have to drop the non winners from less prestigous trainers from my Derby hopeful list- not enough time to watch them all. Maybe Music likes to stay with the pack.

    Sid, did I miss the results from the filly (India?) vs. the unbeaten colt last Sunday? I have not been able to figure out how to access the older posts yet. Was this the race with the Pivotal and Galileo runners?

  2. Sid,

    I believe this is a really good colt, and your notes about his family are, I expect, right on target. He appears to NEED distance and a pretty stiff pace. The latter concern and traffic troubles seemed to be at the root of his 6th in the maiden special, but he really does need to win one.

    The dam was a decent stakes winner and has produced a couple more pretty good winners by indifferent sires like Partner’s Hero and Old Trieste.


  3. I can’t remember the horse’s name, but Aidan O’Brien had a horse that he used as a rabbit who won several hundred thousands of dollars, but never had won a race. Winning is nice, but money to pay their way and maybe a little more sounds good to me.

  4. Frank, yes, you are right.

    Kay, even this year O’Brien had a pair of pacemakers that made some money but didn’t win much: Set Sail, as a pacemaker for Fame and Glory, won 1 of 13 starts, earned £95,203, and was G1 placed; Gran Ducal won 2 of 7, inc. a G3, and earned £97,993. Both were sons of Danehill Dancer.
