Mike Puype Gets Marathon Hero Calidoscopio

Mike Puype was greeted by two Breeders' Cup winners in his barn Sunday: Mizdirection, who he sent out to victory in the Turf Sprint Saturday, and Calidoscopio, who was transferred to him by Argentine connections following a victory in the Marathon Friday.
 
“She (Mizdirection) seemed to come out of it good, and I couldn't be more pleased,” Puype said after the 4yo filly rallied from 11th to win the Turf Sprint under Mike Smith. “I thought her win was one of the best performances in the Breeders' Cup races.

“She came off a layoff, beat colts and had a wide trip,” Puype said of the reasons he was elated with the challenging score. Mizdirection made her first start since May and remained perfect in four starts on the hillside turf course at Santa Anita.
 
“I'm not sure what's next for her,” said Puype of the gray/roan daughter of Mizzen Mast. “I'm just going to have to huddle up with the owners.”
 
Calidoscopio, a 9yo horse who had trained at Betfair Hollywood Park for six weeks since arriving from Argentina, also joined the Puype stable. “He's here for now,” said Puype of the Argentine-bred horse trained to a 17.20-to-1 upset victory by Guillermo Frenkel.
 
“They're thinking of leaving him here to race, but I'm not sure in what races. I should know more in a week from John Fulton (advisor to Stud Dona Pancha).”

This animal filled a huge void. There are NO stamina horses left on the main track, so a competent one loosk, relatively, like a Citation.
So excited for Calidoscopio! I thought he would run well in the Marathon, but he blew away my expectations. I wonder if he would do OK on Synthetics. I also hope Puype doesnt try to change his training style of galloping bareback. I'm really excited to see what he can do in more races in the US
Wow, I hope he stays here to race - and to stand st stud! We need an infusion of stamina in our bloodstock.
Thrilled about this, regardless of he does, nice that we get to see him in action again.
