Parboo Pleased With Giant Ryan, Trinniberg

Shivananda Parbhoo’s Giant Ryan was scheduled to work Wednesday morning about 8:30 after the renovation break, but the 5-year-old did not want to wait that long.

“He was active in his stall this morning and we didn’t want him to hurt himself,” trainer Bisnath Parboo said of the Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Sprint (GI) hopeful. “He was ready.”


So, at 6:20 with Willie Martinez aboard, the winner of six consecutive races including the Grade I Vosburgh, went to the track where he turned in a half-mile work in :48.60, seventh fastest of 25 at the distance on a track labeled fast. Giant Ryan, who was working on his own, was clocked in fractions of :12, :24, :36 and out five furlongs in 1:02.40.  “We wanted :48 and out in 1:01 or 1:02, so we got what we wanted,” Parboo said. “He’s not tired at all. We may do a little something (next week before the Breeders’ Cup) depending on how he feels. He will tell you what he wants to do. He is a very easy horse to train. If he needs a one- or two-furlong breeze, he will get it.”


Giant Ryan had worked three furlongs in :39.20 on a track labeled as wet-fast last Wednesday.


“The racetrack does not matter with him,” Parboo said. “He runs on any track.”


About an hour later, Parboo returned to the track with stablemate Trinniberg, a candidate for the Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Sprint.


With Martinez up and working in company with the 4-year-old Butler Cabin out of the starting gate, Trinniberg covered three furlongs in :37.60 while maintaining a narrow edge on his workmate. Fractions for the work were :25.20 and out a half-mile in :50.40 and five furlongs in 1:03.80. The three-eighths time was the sixth fastest of 11 at the distance.


Trinniberg, who is graded stakes-placed on off-tracks, had worked a bullet half-mile in :48.20 on a sloppy track last Thursday with Martinez up.


“His work last week on the off track was good,” Martinez said. “But his work today was unbelievable. The track was cuppy and when we broke from the gate, we were carried out toward the middle of the track by some horses and we didn’t move to the rail until the gallop-out.


“That may have affected the time a bit. He did it the right way today. His last race, it was like the light went on.”
