Belmont Park: Pletcher has pair for Peter Pan
Trainer Todd Pletcher, who could do no better than third with his five runners in the Kentucky Derby, is expected to send out the duo of Abraham and Battier in Saturday’s Grade 2, $200,000 Peter Pan Stakes.
Abraham, a son of Distorted Humor, is coming off a fourth-place finish in the Grade 3 Illinois Derby. Prior to that, he finished third in the Sunland Derby.
Battier, a son of Tale of the Cat, is a recent addition to the Pletcher barn after being purchased privately by Eclipse Thoroughbreds.
Battier, previously trained by Pablo Andrade, started out in the claiming ranks at Parx last fall but recently won an overnight stakes at Aqueduct.
Others pointing to the Peter Pan include Freedom Child, Infinite Magic, Incognito, Transparent, Sr. Quisqueyano, Narvaez, Saint Vigeur, Fear the Kitten, and possibly Declan’s Warrior.
I'm starting to think Pletch, like Bob B in CA can't teach a horse to run from the back. Seems all his good ones are front or pace runners. Not what is needed for Derby. Even after his win in the derby, his record is poor at best. Starting to think he's just "cheep front speed guy".
Anyone hear Micromange might run for Pletcher?
Incognito is going to win this race and then beat orb in the Belmont stakes
Freedom Child, interestingly enough, finished 2nd in a MSW at Aqueduct last year between 2 horses you may have heard of. Revolutionary and Orb.
I spoke to Shew and Logan about these horses, Abraham is not bad. I am sure this race will fill.Shew and Logan has stated that Pletcher is now like 1 for 38 in the derby. He did hit the winners circle in the oaks race, boy did that filly look good in winning it. It seems like anymore, when Pletcher has more than one horse entered, the longest shot of his horses win. Just like the Oaks.
