Blaine Wright&rsquo;s 15 minutes of Triple Crown trail fame ended at about the eighth pole of the Preakness Stakes when Anothertwistafate, after a gallant try, raised the white flag and was throttled down by Jose Ortiz.But it was fun while it lasted.&ldquo;He took me to some places I&rsquo;ve never been and put me on a national stage, at least for a while,&rdquo; Wright said from his Emerald Downs stable Friday morning. &ldquo;At times the hype and the hoopla was a little overwhelming, but you hate to say no to anybody.&rdquo;Winning the El Camino Real Derby at Golden Gate and finishing second in the Sunland Derby and Lexington Stakes for owner Peter Redekop allowed Anothertwistafate to be a respectable 14&#45;1 in the middle jewel of the Crown. He pressed the pace from the start and was a length off the lead at the top of the stretch, still grinding hard.&ldquo;It got awfully exciting there between the quarter pole and the eighth pole when he was up there battling for it,&rdquo; said Wright, a second&#45;generation trainer. &ldquo;That&rsquo;s something I&rsquo;ll never forget. And for my mom and dad and sisters to experience a Triple Crown race like that was something very special for our family.&rdquo; After cross&#45;country road trips to New Mexico, Kentucky, and Maryland, Anothertwistafate put in for a little R and R at Premiere Equine, in Oakdale, Calif.&ldquo;He dropped some weight in his last travel, and you could tell he was tired when he got back home,&rdquo; Wright said. &ldquo;He&rsquo;s out in a pasture, soaking up the sunshine, getting his vitamin K and much&#45;needed rest. We decided it would be best to let him grow up into a man and tackle them as a 4&#45;year&#45;old when he gets back. I&rsquo;m sure we&rsquo;ll be experimenting with turf, too, since his pedigree suggests that.&rdquo;His pedigree, in fact, suggests that his 2&#45;year&#45;old sale price of $360,000 could be a steal if the colt takes advantage of a family tree that begins with his sire, Scat Daddy, and taps into a Juddmonte Farms female line that produced Empire Maker, Chester House, and Honest Lady.All that is for later. For now, &ldquo;Twist&rdquo; is out of sight for Wright, although he often comes fondly to mind. Of immediate importance is Sunday&rsquo;s $50,000 Budweiser Stakes, in which Wright and Redekop will run their 5&#45;year&#45;old ballistic missile Anyportinastorm, a winner of four of his last five starts, including a 3 1/2&#45;length cruise in the Governor&rsquo;s Stakes last time out.(At some point this reporter will have a word with Mr. Redekop about these names he is giving his horses, with letters stacked like an overstuffed rack of Scrabble tiles.)Making his Emerald Downs debut, Anyportinastorm reduced six furlongs to 1:07.54 in the Governor&rsquo;s, which used to be impressive until Beyer Figures came along to take all the fun out of raw times. Still, in terms of effort spent, shading 1:08 is a good day&rsquo;s work and earned a 91 Beyer, which compared favorably to the 94 &ldquo;Port&rdquo; was awarded in winning the Lost in the Fog Stakes on Tapeta at Golden Gate, and the 92 he earned for finishing a close third in the Bill Thomas Memorial at Sunland, on the same afternoon Anothertwistafate just missed in the Derby.&ldquo;He&rsquo;s a pretty simple horse to train,&rdquo; Wright said. &ldquo;He&rsquo;s very laid back, but he does know when to turn it up. It took us some time to hit our stride with him. But it was never really a soundness thing. He was just unlucky with things around the barn, a loose horse on the track. I guess you might say it took a while for the racing gods to turn him loose.&rdquo;Anyportinastorm has made only 12 starts, six of them wins and all of them quality. His only finish off the board came in the Baffle Stakes down the hill at Santa Anita Park in February of 2017.&ldquo;He lost both front shoes that day when he made the jump from the grass to the dirt then the dirt back to the grass,&rdquo; Wright said, referring to the strip of main track that intersects the course. &ldquo;You can see one of the shoes flying on the video.&rdquo;Such an incident will take the starch out of any racehorse on the move. A few months later, Wright tried Anyportinastorm at a mile on the grass at Golden Gate. He was caught late and finished a decent third, a result his trainer filed away for the day his horse was a more polished professional. As a son of City Zip, out of a Wild Again mare, Anyportinastorm would appear to have a right to stretch his speed a little farther than the 6 1/2 furlongs of the Budweiser, which definitely puts the Holy Grail of the Northwest in play.&ldquo;The reason we brought him to Seattle was to target the Longacres Mile,&rdquo; Wright said. &ldquo;Neither me nor Peter have ever won the Mile, so we wanted to take another crack at it.&rdquo;The $200,000 Longacres Mile will be run for the 84th time on Aug. 11. History tells us that it takes a superior sprinter &ndash; on the order of Viking Spirit or Chinook Pass &ndash; to deal with the very good middle distance horses that usually show up. Anyportinastorm could get his chance to be among them.
