This is a feature on a contender, Hidden Scroll. I would like to say I spotted and jumped on this horse . Truth is I watched his race on Pegasus day and even played him but didn't really pay that much attention. Another poster messaged me.
He is a son of Hard Spun, which is the very desirable Danzig line. What I remember most about him was he was a hard tryer. And was always right there in the Triple Crown races with Street Sense, and 2 time horse of the year Curlin.
His race on Pegasus day was his debut. Here is something from an article comparing his race with the big events winner, City Of Light
"The feeling here is that we witnessed something very special on Saturday, despite the track. You normally don’t see an 8-1 shot look that sensational first time out, winning under a hand ride by 14 lengths in a scintillating 1:34 4/5 for the mile. If you feel the track was so fast it takes away from the time then forget the actual time. He ran the mile faster than the 5-year-old City of Light ran his mile in the $9 million Pegasus World Cup at 1 1/8 miles. He came home his final eighth in just about the same time as City of Light. He ran his mile more than a full second faster than it took the 6-year-old Aztec Sense to win the grade 3 Fred W. Hooper Stakes, and Aztec Sense was winning his ninth consecutive race, including five stakes. Finally, he ran his opening half-mile in :44.75, compared to the :44.37 it took one of the fastest sprinters in the country, World of Trouble, in the off-the-turf Gulfstream Park Turf Sprint."
His time would also be a very good Met Mile. This poster also pointed out he took a massive drop in the futures. From 75/1 to 14/1
One definitely to keep an eye on going forward into the Fountain Of Youth.
Here is the race.
