Winslow Homer made his stakes debut in the Holy Bull with only three starts
to his credit, but he was well-regarded despite the limited credentials, leaving
the starting gate as the 7-2 co-second choice in the wagering. The Tony
Dutrow-trained colt received a 106 BRIS Speed in his previous start, a 12
1/2-length allowance romp at Philadelphia Park, and bettors were willing to
gamble on his stakes potential.
