It's January, and it's snowing, so if you think it's too early to be
talking about Kentucky Derby contenders (it is), then it is definitely
too early to be talking about Queen's Plate contenders - - a race that
was held on the 4th of July in 2010.
However, as I kept an eye on the encouraging Gulfstream meet on Friday, I
was surprised to watch a rather inexpensive Ontario-bred rush to the
lead and keep on running to win by more than two lengths in a one-mile
$51,500 allowance event. That colt, Black N Beauty, a three-year-old
Ontario-bred by Devil His Due just might have earned himself a shot at
the G3 Holy Bull..
