Doug O’Neill sent out the final 2-year-old winner of the meet at
Hollywood Park on Sunday. At Del Mar, he comes loaded with several
promising runners, most notably the Flower Alley colt I’ll Have Another,
a powerful debut winner at Hollywood Park who is pointing to the Grade
2, $150,000 Best Pal Stakes on Aug. 7.
O’Neill wins here, and he wins there. Winning! But the colt all
admirers of pop-culture references will most follow has to be Adonis D N
A, an Unbridled’s Song colt named for an aspect of one of actor Charlie
Whether Adonis D N A needs tiger blood to perform at his best remains to be seen.
O’Neill won the Del Mar Futurity in 2005 with Stevie Wonderboy, and a
member of that colt’s first crop, Runstevierun, is among O’Neill’s top
prospects for the summer, he said.
