My newest Kentucky Derby 2014
contender Gold Hawk
ran his record to a perfect 2-for-2 with a good looking, late striding
3-1/2 length score in an entry level route at Fair Grounds Dec. 27.
A $450k purchase trained by Steve Asmussen, Gold Hawk owns a
promising route pedigree and has plenty of upside. Look for him to join
the sophomore stakes ranks in New Orleans next year.
Purple Sky had every chance in the stretch and ended up a respectable 4th, 3/4ths and a head shy of the place. That’s back-to-back disappointments around two turns and his stock continues to drop.
