There was significant chatter on Twitter yesterday after Trickmeister, an undefeated son of Proud Citizen, won the nine-furlong Pleasant Colony Stakes at Saratoga Friday by almost 12 lengths. Here’s the race:
Thoroughbred Times writer Jeff Lowe was particularly impressed when he tweeted this: “Had to revisit Dutrow’s comments about Boys at Tosconova after what Trickmeister did today. Scary”
Both the 3-year-old Trickmeister, now four for four, and 2-year-old Boys at Tosconova are trained by Richard Dutrow, who also trained Derby winner Big Brown for Trickmeister’s connections, IEAH Stable. Believe it or not, turns out it’s the 2-year-old that Dutrow compares to Big Brown, instead of IEAH’s own impressive 3-year-old.
How good is he? Read Jeff’s Aug. 17 article in Thoroughbred Times here.
