What the Nation is saying about Afonso De Sousa...

As someone who loves both history in general and, when it comes to horse racing, the kind of history that deals with pedigree and bloodlines, I've always loved "finding" and following those more obscure horses who aren't superstars but just honest runners who are interesting because of their family connections. Two I've come across this week (but should have been onto long ago) are Spring to the Sky, a multiple graded-placed turf sprinter whose second dam is the brilliant Soaring Softly, and Afonso de Sousa. This guy is a Henrythenavigator half-brother to Big Brown. He's owned by Coolmore and has only competed in the British isles, but because he's done his best running on "American style" (flat, left-handed) tracks, I was glad to see that he's an early nominee for the Woodford Reserve Turf Classic back here in the US. Could he possibly turn out to be another Cape Blanco on American soil?
Afonso de Sousa has been nominated for the Gr. II Twilight Derby at Santa Anita on Friday of the Breeders' Cup meeting
