Parbhoo Discusses Trinniberg, Giant Ryan

Trinniberg picked up his third graded stakes victory this year on Saturday afternoon at Belmont Park, taking the Grade 2 Woody Stephens presented by VisitNassauCounty.com.

 

Sunday morning, the 3-year-old Teuflesberg colt was said to be in good spirits.

 

“He’s doing very nice,” said owner Shivananda Parbhoo, who campaigns the colt with his father, trainer Bisnath Parboo. “He’s happy, he ate all his food, everything is good on his side.”

 

Trinniberg, runner up in two graded stakes last summer at Saratoga, started his sophomore campaign with a victory in Gulfstream Park’s Grade 3 Swale Stakes, followed by an easy win in Aqueduct’s Grade 3 Bay Shore. He finished 17th when stretched out for the Kentucky Derby, and yesterday made a triumphant return to sprinting as he led at every call to take the seven-furlong Woody Stephens by 1 ¾ lengths. 

 

“I was thinking about running him at Calder, but he’s done a lot of work this year so far,” said Parbhoo. “I’m going to give him two weeks off and we’ll train him for the [Foxwoods] King’s Bishop [Grade 1, $500,000, seven furlongs on August 25 at Saratoga].”

 

Trinniberg’s win was bittersweet for the family after their New York-bred champion sprinter Giant Ryan fractured both left front sesamoids during the running of the Grade 2 True North Handicap earlier in the day on Saturday.

 

“He’s OK this morning, not good, but OK,” Parbhoo said of Giant Ryan, who remained stabled overnight at Belmont. “He ate his food last night, and drank a lot of water, which is a good sign.”

 

Parbhoo said that the current plan was for Giant Ryan to have surgery in an attempt to repair the fracture so he could go on to a stud career, but that nothing was firmly scheduled.

 

“We’re waiting on a call from the doctor and then we’ll ship to the hospital, most likely New Bolton [at the University of Pennsylvania]. I’m hoping for today, but waiting for their call.”
