Grading the Kentucky Derby 2012 Preps Daddy Nose Best in Sunland Derby

The Kentucky Derby 2012 trail made a rare stop in New Mexico and Daddy Nose Best wore down local hope Isn’t He Clever in an exciting renewal of the Grade 3 Sunland Derby.

 

G3 Sunland Derby (3-25-12): 100 BSF (Daddy Nose Best)

 

An unexpected suicidal speed duel between post time favorite Castaway and Ender Knievel set things up for the patient runners and Isn’t He Clever got the first run trip under Luis Contreras, who seemingly jumped the gun and moved too soon.

 

Julien Leparoux and Daddy Nose Best bided their time in 6th place and went after the local hero turning for home.

 

Isn’t He Clever appeared home free for a moment but Asmussen’s El Camino Real winner was grinding away and got the job done by 3/4ths of a length, running nine furlongs in a solid 1:48.59.
