    • He’s fast: Once zoomed an opening quarter in 20 4/5 seconds — at Churchill.
    • He belongs: A winner of two graded stakes — the Swale and the Bay Shore — the son of Teuflesberg, 17th in the 2007 Derby, has placed in two other graded stakes.
    • He’s the horse everybody expects to set the pace and nobody wants to collar early. Does that mean he’ll get a clear easy lead?


    • He’s never run longer than seven furlongs.
    • That sub-21-second first quarter? He subsequently faded to finish seventh.
    • He has to actually get the lead to set the pace — no easy task in a 20-horse field loaded with front-runners.

    Fun fact

    Travels well—Trinniberg already has run at six different racetracks, including Churchill.

    Final analysis
