Nicanor and Lentenor Racing This Friday and Saturday

Once again, Barbaro’s brothers are racing on back-to back days, but this time their roles are reversed. 


Last month, Lentenor, in his first race back after a five month break, went first in an allowance/optional claiming race where he finished third.  The next day, Nicanor went in the Eight Thirty Stakes where he finished in sixth place.  This time around, we have Nicanor going first in an allowance/optional claiming race on Friday, then Lentenor going on Saturday in the $250,000 Grade III Kent Stakes.


Nicanor’s race is at Belmont Park on Friday, Race #8, post time about 4:43.  It is a $75,000 allowance/optional claiming race at 1 1/16 miles on the inner turf course.  Nicanor is not entered for a tag.  Nicanor will have Ramon Dominguez on board for the first time.  Ramon is on fire at Belmont’s current fall meet.  As of yesterday, he is leading in earnings and has hit the board in 67% of his races.  The race drew a field of seven, with Nicanor breaking from the sixth hole.  Let’s hope Nicanor breaks well and goes right to the lead and never looks back!  This race, IMO, is Nicanor’s most important to date.  I am hoping that he will love the Belmont turf and, with Ramon’s experience, have the best race of his still young career.
