Gulfstream Park: Trinniberg has final local workout for Dubai run
By Mike Welsch
HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. – Shivananda Parbhoo went to Dubai for the first time last spring, sending out Giant Ryan to a creditable fifth-place finish in the Golden Shaheen. When he goes back for a second time later this month, Parbhoo will return with even more firepower, the reigning male sprint champion, Trinniberg, who will make his 2013 debut and first start since upsetting the Breeders’ Cup Sprint in the six-furlong Golden Shaheen.
On Wednesday, Trinniberg had his final local work before shipping to Dubai next Tuesday evening, breezing five furlongs from the gate in 1:01.30 with regular rider Willie Martinez aboard after the first renovation break. Breaking off between stablemates Purely Precious and Trump Card, Trinniberg posted splits of 25.01, 36.09, and 48.36 seconds, eventually edging away from Purely Precious after the opening half-mile before galloping out six furlongs in 1:14.41. The work came over a cuppy racetrack, with the opening three-eighths into a stiff headwind.
“He worked well, and I liked the way he galloped out,” Parbhoo said. “He didn’t come back tired at all. I worked him from the gate because it’s the same thing we did in his next-to-last work at Santa Anita prior to the Breeders’ Cup. I’ll work him once more in Dubai, probably three-eighths out a half.”
Parbhoo said he got an education from taking Giant Ryan to Dubai a year ago.
“I’m very excited about going back over,” Parbhoo said. “I learned a lot from that trip, just how to prepare and get ready, and this year we’re going back there to win. I only hope the stabling situation is a little better than it was last year, when the quarantine barn was located about four to five miles from the track. We had to put our horse on a truck to go for training, cool him out, and then put him back on a truck to return to the barn.”
Parbhoo’s main concern is the fact that Trinniberg has never raced over a synthetic surface coming into the Golden Shaheen.
“He seems to handle any track we’ve tried him on,” Parbhoo said. “Once I get over there and he works, we’ll know exactly where we stand.”
Will be interesting to see the results. I liked his win in the Swale off a layoff and Teuflesberg won on synthetics at Keeneland as well as his full sister Ostourah was an impressive winnier on turf. Don't understand anyone bashing shot in Dubai over a race here is the states. Don't know what he needs to prove here in the spring races?
If you think you have a shot to win a $2 million race, you RUN!
M & Bruce: People like you were knocking this colt down earlier last year. Now you knock him down for Dubai. I'm not saying he's going to win. But he has a legit shot. Tell me which races they should wait for here, and not go to Dubai to take a shot at big money ?
I thought this horse was in tough for the BC Sprint proved me wrong. I still won the pick 3 because I went deep in the BC Sprint. I'm not leaving him out in Dubai. As an owner/trainer with a horse like this you have to take these shots. At least he is saying that he would know better after his Meydan work. He was royally bashed after the Kentucky Derby debacle yet heralded after BC sprint win. I wish them good luck. Ok here is my picks: Trinniberg - hits the board Little Mile - also ran Dullahan - also ran Royal Delta - also ran Animal Kingdom - WINS !!!!!
m ur an idiot
An old horseman once said you don't get anything extra for doing things more difficult...NEVER raced in the desert....NEVER raced at night....NEVER raced on a synthetic surface....NEVER raced straight! "once I get over there....we'll know exactly where we stand ." Waste of time for a nice colt.......probably ruin him
For Trinni and his very close knit Family I say Namaste'.
