Notes: Always held in high regard by his connection s, this son of Tale of Ekati needed six starts to break his maiden, finally doing so in a 1 3/16m contest for three-year -olds and up at Keeneland on April 23. With Joel Rosario aboard for the first time, Tale of Verve displayed a big late kick from the back of the pack despite a wide trip and pulled away for a two-length score over five rivals. Dallas Stewart s charge hit the wire in 2 00.23 and earned a 95 BRIS Speed Rating, 10 points higher than his previous best when second in a March 5 Fair Grounds contest. The breakthrou gh victory prompted his connection s to enter the colt as an also eligible in the G1 Kentucky Derby, but he failed to draw into the field when El Kabeir and Internatio nal Star scratched after the Friday morning deadline. Bred in Kentucky by owner Charles Fipke, the bay is out of the Unbridled mare Verve and was foaled on April 12, 2012. Tale of Verve has banked 54,640 with his 6-1-1-2 record that dates back to his career debut last October 18 at Keeneland. Following a May 10 breeze at Churchill Downs, his connection s confirmed that the colt will be entered in the G1 Preakness S. on May 16 and ridden again by Rosario.
