O-Repole Stable & St. Elias Stable. B- John D. Gunther (KY). T-Todd Pletcher. Sales history: $410,000 yrl KEESEP ’16. Lifetime Record: GSW, 6-3-0-1, $620,500.
This $410,000 KEESEP Curlin colt never looked comfortable in the back of the pack taking a spray of slop and he could only muster a mild bid after getting parked four, then five wide on both turns. “Vino Rosso just didn’t like the track. Not at all,” trainer Todd Pletcher said Sunday. “We had to flush a lot of dirt and mud out of all their eyes [Saturday] night, but I don’t ever remember flushing more mud out of a horse’s eyes that we did with him. We were still flushing it out [Sunday] morning. The Belmont S. is now the next likely start for this colt “The horse is bred for it and he’ll be going there,” Pletcher said.
