Algorithms Galloping at Belmont Park

Starlight Racing's Algorithms, winner of the Jan. 29 Holy Bull Stakes (gr. III) in his most recent start, has returned from a layup and is galloping daily at Belmont Park under the supervision of trainer Todd Pletcher, Starlight principal Jack Wolf said Sept. 25.

Undefeated in three  starts including his five-length win in the Holy Bull at Gulfstream Park, the 3-year-old son of Bernardini   was considered a top Triple Crown prospect of 2012 before he fractured a splint bone in his right front leg. He was scratched from the Feb. 26 Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth Stakes (gr. II) the morning of the race and underwent surgery at Ocala Equine Hospital in late February after the injury was discovered.

The colt returned to Belmont Sept. 11, according to Wolf.

This year we had so many gifted 3YO's - and so many of them were made of spun glass. How many of them will pass on their brilliance? Or more likely their fragility?? Yes, the Irish, Germans, French, and Japanese are all breeding more horses with more stamina and durability these days...
How much of the 3 year old crop have we lost now? 90%? I should try to do the numbers. Worst year I've ever seen or that I remember. Hope it gets better because it can't get much worse. The BC this year should be a real sleeper, glad there's politics to put some fire into the season.
Keep breeding speed to speed, HIDE the genetics of EIPH, keep shortening the schedule so stamina genes have no way of being discovered and this is whatyou get. Give me the IRISH bred anytime.
Sad news.
From The Inside Post (DRF Grening) - Algorithms retired due to aggravation of splint bone injury that forced him to sidelines in February. Starlight/Pletcher colt was 3 for 3.
Whats his next race?
He breezed this morning...Track: BELMONT PARK Distance: Three Furlongs Time: 37:26 Breezing Track Condition: Fast
