Preakness 2012: Trinniberg will run if Bodemeister doesn’t
Owner Shivananda Parbhoo is so impressed with how well Trinniberg has come out of the Kentucky Derby that he said Tuesday if Derby runner-up Bodemeister doesn’t run in the Preakness, Trinniberg will run in the second leg of the Triple Crown.
“If Bodemeister is going to the Preakness, I’m not going to go,” Parbhoo said by phone Tuesday from Florida. If he’s not going, I’ll go to the Preakness.”
Trinniberg vanned from Kentucky to Calder on Monday and was full of himself Tuesday morning walking the shed, according to Parbhoo.
“He’s feeling that good,” said Parbhoo, who planned to return Trinniberg to the track on Wednesday. “This morning we had to put the lipshank on him. He’s very aggressive.”
It was Trinniberg who prompted Bodemeister through a quarter-mile in 22.32 seconds, a half-mile in 45.39 and six furlongs in 1:09.80 – all among the top five fractions in Derby history – before fading in the final quarter-mile. Trinniberg ultimately finished 17th, 31 1/2 lengths behind I’ll Have Another, who collared Bodemeister inside the sixteenth pole.
Parbhoo believes if it were not for Trinniberg, Bodemeister would have won the Derby and most likely, he believes the Triple Crown.
“I went into the race not to hurt anybody like that,” Parbhoo said. “I didn’t think we’d go that fast; I thought 47 [seconds] for the half and maybe 1:11 or 1:12” for six furlongs.
Parbhoo said that with a 1 1/4-mile race under Trinniberg’s belt, he doesn’t feel the 1 3/16 miles of the Preakness will be a problem for his horse, especially if Bodemeister doesn’t run.
“I don’t think there’s anybody in the race who would go with us besides him,” Parbhoo said.
Parbhoo said if Bodemeister does run in the Preakness, he will stick with his original plan of waiting to run Trinniberg in the seven-furlong Woody Stephens at Belmont Park on June 9.
Bode is gona run and run crazy fast thats his only hope to steal the race. Which it all but set iup for the stalker closers. My bet is he finnishes out of the money. He was lucky to get 2nd last time and Baffert knows it. And Mr Parbhoo needs to talk straight. 47 for the half, these arent claimers. Get real. Frankly i think Trinniberg was inconsequential. Bode was gona be Bode. You are not gona change him in two weeks. They should save him for the Breeders Cup.
i had triniberg and other bets. She screwed up the race by setting a crazy fast pace. I believe it messed up the timing of the race and through a lot of good horses off their rhythm. Ill Have Another came off the pace to win. Never happen again.
The connections of I'll Have Another may be behind this!!! Just kidding, but they sure would benefit if this happens!!!
WHY NOT WAIT FOR THE JOCKEY CLUB GOLD CUP? ....hehe
This is a sprinter miler. C'mon! Very nice horse so let him show it... If Bode does not run he still has Hansen who will run this time, especially with no Bode. Please run in the Woody Stevens!
What a Cowboy! Used to be that if you had a horse that could go the distance and beat the best in the field, you would enter your horse. Maybe Mr. Parbhoo better think about what he does and says, seems like he just likes to shoot his mouth off. What he did to that horse in the Derby, losing by 32 lengths is and should be considered Animal Cruelty. Hey, all you activists, this is an animal issue that should be protested.........get this bum out of horse racing, who gave this jackwagon a trainers license?
What's funny is the people blaming Trinni for Bode's loss will also blame him for Bode losing the Preakness. Took too much out of him. I really thought there was a reason they put jockeys on these horses. You know, maybe to keep a horse from being suckered into speed duels and such. Mike Smith is laughing in your face for blaming Trinni! He knows who lost the Derby!!!!!
Trinniberg is a really nice horse, at the 3/16 he was still there, I think he will be a great 7/8 to a mile horse, and I don't care what anybody says, trainer Parbhoo is doing a good job with his horses.
This guy is nuts, gets beat 31 lengths and thinks that Bodemeister cost him the race. Wake up Parboo, the horse doesn't want to go this far even if it is 1/16 shorter.
First of all Bode is running, so Prabu hush. Second is for some reason Bode does not run & with Trin there we get better odds on the real contenders.
