Little Distorted Ready for Stakes Debut

Purchased following a most auspicious debut victory, Little Distorted is scheduled to make his first start for Silverton Hill LLC and trainer Darrin Miller in Tuesday’s $100,000 Spectacular Bid.

The newly turned 3-year-old has impressed his new trainer with his training since switching barns early last month.

“He’s a very impressive horse with a good demeanor. He’s very easy to work with. He’s a willing, accommodating horse,” Miller said.

Little Distorted posted eye-catching speed figures at Belmont Park on Oct. 28 while upsetting 1-5 favorite Revolutionary, a well-connected colt who broke his maiden last week at Aqueduct by 8 ½ lengths. Formerly trained by Michael Mareina for Kuhne Racing , Little Distorted drew off to score by more than two lengths after prompting as setting fast fractions in the six-furlong sprint.

“He’s a big mover,” said Miller, who saddled Dominican for a victory in the 2007 Blue Grass Stakes (G1) and an 11th-place finish in the Kentucky Derby (G1).

“He’s a talented horse who can turn it on and turn it off. He’s a very athletic horse.”

Javier Castellano has the mount for the Spectacular Bid, which attracted a field of six, including Merit Man, who was nosed out by Hightail in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Sprint at Santa Anita on Nov 3.

While Miller hasn’t set a schedule for Little Distorted, he expects the Kentucky-bred colt to participate in Gulfstream Park’s program for 3-year-olds.
