Brethren Serves Notice in Sam Davis

Look out Uncle Mo. Todd Pletcher has another undefeated star in his stable and his name is Brethren, and Super Saver's baby brother is on the road to the Kentucky Derby following an effortless win in Saturday's Sam F. Davis Stakes at Tampa Bay Downs.

Breaking from post 10 under Ramon Dominguez and making his first start since November, Brethren tracked longshot pacesetter Litigate through fractions of :23.75 and :48.20. The WinStar Farm colt took over after six furlongs in 1:13.16 and drew clear to post an easy four length tally. He completed his eight and one-half furlong journey in 1:45.07 and the overwhelming favorite paid $3.80 to win.

Too Experience, also making his first start since November, was 10th after a half and rallied for the place under leading rider Daniel Centeno. Watch Me Go held on for third, a 1/2 length in front of Beamer.













Monzon crossed the line in 5th and was followed by Litigate, Ribo Bobo, Washington's Rules, Adulare, and Reprized Halo.

Brethren, by Distorted Humor, out of A.P. Indy mare Supercharger, began his career with a six furlong maiden win at Belmont Park last October. He cleared the entry level allowance ranks second time out at Churchill Downs. His record now stands at 3-for-3 and he picked up a much needed $120,000 in graded earnings in the Sam Davis.
