Videos: Bernardini’s Wilburn and Stay Thirsty bolster his rep

  1. I’m still very annoyed at the Sheikh’s decision to retire Bernardini before he had a chance to really show how good he was, but at least he’s off to a fine start as a sire. I was starting to get a bit concerned before this weekend as he’d only had a few winners this year, but Break up the Game (who I love) started the weekend off on the right foot. Wilburn was brilliant -he’s HUGE, lol. As to Stay Thirsty, I get that his race has been dissected and been found wanting by some, but I have loved this horse since he made his debut and I was very happy with his race. I think he can move forward off of it, which is all I could ask for. Now if only To Honor and Serve hadn’t run so poorly in the FOY.

    In Break up the Game’s win, a Bernardini colt, Bomber Boy, ran a very good third for Nick Zito. Zito also has a talented colt in Heron Lake, but he appears to have serious soundness issues as, since his maiden win, he’s had one work and it seems he’s been stopped on again.
