Finally one of my favorite bred horses broke his maiden yesterday in 1:08 and change. it took bob a minute(lol) but i think hes figured him out. His mother(xtra heat) won 26 of 35. Once this guy grows all the way up he might end up just like her. FAST REALLY FAST. Being by elusive quality he might love the turf too!
Pimpernel, a $525,000 Elusive Quality colt, finished third as the odds-on favorite in his debut at Hollywood Park on Saturday. Trained by Bob Baffert, Pimpernel is out of 25-time stakes winner Xtra Heat. Xtra Heat’s only stakes defeat came at the hands of Squirtle Squirt in the 2001 Breeders’ Cup Sprint. Squirtle Squirt gave legendary trainer Bobby Frankel his first Breeders’ Cup victory. Incidentally, Saturday marked the four-year anniversary of Frankel’s death.
  • LAZMANNICK · Xtra Heat had a remarkable racing career, especially when one realizes that she was originally thought to be only competitive as a claimer. Her first race was in a maiden 25K claimer, which she won at Laurel. After that race she raced 34 times, all in stakes races, including a BC Juvenile Fillies (10th), 2 BC Sprints (2nd-6th) and a Dubai Golden Shaheen (3rd). Of her 34 stakes races, she won 25 of them, with 5 seconds and 2 thirds. Remarkably, she only missed the top three two times in her career, once in that BC Juvenile Filly and when 6th in her final BC Sprint race. She has had only moderate success with her 8 previous foals. Maybe Pimpernel will give her her first graded stakes winner. · 277 days ago
  • travel_vic · Speed is a born talent CANNOT BE TRAINED to be fast, Stamina on the other hand can, but few last long enough in training to have that discovered about them · 276 days ago
I really like everything I have seen about this colt so far, and I have heard many good things - curious to see if his his training form will translate well to the real track.
