Newsdad Needs Racing Luck in Secretariat

Rodolphe Brisset, assistant to Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott, was pleased with the ship of his charge in the Grade I Secretariat Stakes, Newsdad, fourth beaten more than six lengths in the Grade II Virginia Derby last out.

 

“He put himself well back in the field and really weren’t expecting him to be that far out of it,” Brisset said on Thursday morning.  “That is why the blinkers are going on this time. The Virginia Derby winner made his move inside of us and we had to take the wide journey.  We feel the 10 furlongs is the right distance for him.”

 

Only a maiden winner, Brisset suggested that a step forward would not be unexpected. “He had trouble in the Blue Grass and was wide at Woodbine and in Virginia.  We are hoping for a clean trip.”
