Notes: Stanford ran a great race in the Louisiana Derby, leading for most of the race and almost made it wire to wire, losing to Internatio nal Star right at the finish. It s hard to say if he couldn t have won if he had set a faster pace or if he should have given up the lead early and settled in just to rate the pace but it was a great effort either way. Kentucky Derby betting on Stanford will likely open at a midrange price but is likely to be bet down.
With so many talented 2-year-old s to keep separated, conditione r Todd Pletcher has made a habit of shipping some from his New York base to get their careers started at Monmouth Park in New Jersey. Such was the case with 3-5 favorite Stanford, who delivered for bettors with a winning debut in a June 29 maiden special weight. The son of Malibu Moon overcame a slow start and was hustled into position by jockey Joe Bravo to stalk the early pace in the 5F event. Stanford advanced on the turn to challenge for the lead, took command and kicked clear under a hand ride for a 1 -length victory over nine rivals. The colt stopped the clock in 59.53 and was given an 82 Equibase Speed Figure. Bred in Kentucky by WinStar Farm, LLC, the bay is out of Rosy Humor, a daughter of Distorted Humor, and was foaled on March 28, 2012. The partnershi p of Stonestree t Stables LLC, M. Magnier, M. Tabor and D. Smith purchased Stanford for 550,000 at the Barretts Equine Limited 2014 March Sale of Selected Two-Year-O lds in Training. He earned 22,800 of that back in his initial outing.
