Trinniberg Probably Going to Preakness

Trinniberg felt fiesty following his three-length Bay Shore romp on Saturday, while the colt’s connections seemed content to enjoy his second consecutive Grade 3 victory for the time being.

 

“He’s great,” owner Shivananda Parbhoo said Sunday morning. “He’s doing very, very good. Did you see how he galloped out? It was amazing. Willie [Martinez] said he didn’t even ask him at all during the race. To win a race like that in New York against quality, well-bred horses and to do it so easy…I couldn’t believe it.”

 

The son of Teuflesberg gave his connections several signs that he was not overly taxed by his gate-to-wire win in the seven-furlong Bay Shore.

 

“Last night, we gave him his feed at 7:15 and by 7:40, he was finished,” said Shivananda Parbhoo, who manages the colt with his father, trainer Bisnath Parboo. “He wanted to bite everybody, and he’s not that type of horse. Usually, he’s very easy. This morning, he was very, very aggressive – we had to restrain him just to walk him he was so strong.”

 

Shivananda Parbhoo said he would make a decision about Trinniberg’s next start within the next two weeks, after shipping the colt by van Monday morning back to Bisnath Parboo’s Calder Race Course base.

 

“I’m still 85 percent for the Preakness, 15 percent for the Kentucky Derby,” said Shivananda Parbhoo. “Everybody likes the Derby; I like it, too. Everybody wants to win that race, but if I think he’s not capable of going a mile and a quarter, why go just to run? I don’t want to ruin the horse and there are so many races for 3-year-olds. His breeding says a mile to a mile and a sixteenth, and that’s it. He’s a good horse, and I want to keep him a good horse.”

I dont think this guys has no chance vs this group of 3 year olds. His sire is teuflesburg correct?
I bet they'll race him one last time before the Preakness, in a mile or 1 1/16 if he can handle it he'll run away with the race.
Can this horse make the jump from 7f to 9 1/2 AND going around 2 turns??
I applaud his connections. They said it themselves: they have a perfectly good derb contender who at this point has almost secured himself a spot, but they are focused on keeping this horse where he should be, at shorter distances than the Derby.
