Boys At Tosconova Readies for Holy Bull

10 September 06: Boys At Tosconova (no. 5), ridden by Ramon Dominguez and trained by Richard Dutrow Jr., wins the 106th running of the grade 1 Hopeful Stakes for two year olds at Saratoga Race Track in Saratoga Springs, New York.

Trainer Rick Dutrow Jr. has mapped out a tentative schedule for Kentucky Derby (G1) prospects BOYS AT TOSCONOVA (Officer) and MOUNTAIN TOWN (Cape Town), who are both slated to race at Gulfstream Park this winter. The 51-year-old conditioner readied Big Brown at the South Florida oval in 2008, winning a pair of starts, including a sensational five-length score in the Florida Derby (G1), before saddling the eventual champion to victories in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness (G1).


Hopeful S. (G1) winner and Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1) runner-up Boys at Tosconova is the star of the stable presently.


"We're looking at the one-turn race at the end of January for him," Dutrow said, referring to the one-mile Holy Bull S. (G3) on January 30. "Keeping him here for the Florida Derby (on April 3) is something I think we would want to do."


Boys at Tosconova recorded a fast-finishing second in his career debut, the April 30 Kentucky Juvenile (G3), before being privately sold and transferred to Dutrow. He graduated in style next time out, sailing to a 12-length maiden special weight victory at Belmont Park on July 2, and trained up to the September 6 Hopeful at Saratoga. The nearly black colt returned from the two-month freshening with a powerful performance, winning the seven-furlong event in hand by 1 3/4 lengths, and then tried two turns in the Breeders' Cup.

This colt should be primed for a big year. Think the one turn mile will serve him very well in the G3 Holy Bull Stakes. I do believe he'll need another race between the Holy Bull and Florida Derby. But that'll be up to Dutrow to figure out.
