Trinniberg Works From Gate at Saratoga

The last time Trinniberg raced at Saratoga, he was the longest shot in the field, sent off at nearly 70-1 in last year’s Grade 1 Three Chimneys Hopeful. His return to the Spa in next Saturday’s Grade 1 Foxwoods King’s Bishop likely is to be quite different, with three graded stakes wins since then, including the Grade 3 Bay Shore at Aqueduct Racetrack in April and the Grade 2 Woody Stephens at Belmont Park in June.

 

The son of Teuflesberg breezed three furlongs from the gate under regular rider Willie Martinez in 35.56 seconds on Friday morning, the second-fastest at the distance over the main track. Trinniberg worked in company with Nick Rules.

 

“I didn’t want him to go to the gate by himself,” explained Shivananda Parbhoo, the colt’s owner. Trinniberg is trained by Parbhoo’s father, Bisnath Parboo.

 

Though Trinniberg has no history of gate problems, Parbhoo wanted him to get “a little sharper” for his upcoming start.

 

“He’s a front-runner,” he said. “They’re going to have come catch him, and this is what I wanted, just to get him on edge a little more. He went really fast, which is good.”

 

Trinniberg is coming off a neck loss in the Grade 3 Carry Back on July 7 at Calder Race Course, a race in which he dueled with eventual winner Fort Loudon to the wire. Despite the early speed in that race, Parbhoo said his horse came back fine.

 

“We were not totally ready for that race; I wasn’t even supposed to run in it,” he said. “But we’re based in south Florida [at Calder] and we helped them out. Unfortunately, we got beat.”
