Kentucky Derby 2014 Contenders – Shared Belief Freaks at BHP

Shared Belief burst onto the Kentucky Derby 2014 scene on Sunday, leaving highly regarded returnee Kobe’s Back in the dust in the Grade III Hollywood Prevue Stakes.

Shared Belief also romped in his Golden Gate debut, and he was subsequently purchased privately by Jim Rome’s Jungle Racing and trainer Jerry Hollendorfer.

In the 7f Prevue at Hollywood Park, he tracked the pace in 2nd, took over in the lane, and drew off to win by almost 8-lengths. The sharp gelding completed his final furlong in 11.76 seconds and earned a 99 BSF.

Kobe’s Back rallied to finish a clear 2nd in his first start in more than four months. He generated buzz after a slow start and fast finish in his June Hollywood debut for Sadler, but he owns a less than stellar route pedigree and sports the look of a late running sprinter at this stage.

He is supposed to look good on the poly,let him show the ability to handle the dirt.Then maybe he can generate some excitement. Just like all the Candy Rides,except a little bit of Sidneys Candy who fizzled on the dirt ,Misremembered who was a nice horse and Chocolate Candy who is good.This sire has not done anything on the dirt. I for one will wait this guy out. Like i said, he is supposed to run over the carpet or turf.
Two races, looks like the real deal. Hope he doesn't peak too early. It would be a good west coast rep.
