There is always intrigue surrounding a horse who is undefeated.
Growing-up I was fascinated with them, especially as a fan who didn’t
dig deep into performances with a handicappers eye. I remember when
Lite The Fuse won his first two races at Saratoga. I was there for
both, and was stoked about seeing the next potential star of the sport
because without a blemish on paper, anything was possible.
Golden Moka is undefeated heading into the Super Derby, and the ceiling
of potential is unknown. His first four races were somewhat unorthodox
– Panamanian sprints to a Canadian Triple Crown race off the layoff –
but he’s handled each start just fine. And when you combine the human interest element, he quickly becomes a horse to root for.
