Pretty Ferro is Dominant in PA Derby

PA Derby – Grade I (P5)
1 1/8 Mile Dirt Stake Purse $1,000.000 Open 3 Year Olds.

1st   Pretty Ferro                Estero Farms              Velazquez J R

Backed right off a fast pace and then made gradual and ominous progress before exploding past his rivals for a hugely impressive 2 length win. This is win number 7 of 9 starts as a three year old and dare i say it he may even still be improving. So its onward to the Classic and it would be a brave man to bet against him.

2nd   Zombie City                Eastern Equine               Gallardo A A

Justified his big price tag with a great effort in finishing second to the great Pretty Ferro. He had to go round horses inside the final furlong and this run was a really nice trial for the Classic where the extra distance will suit hin down to the ground.

3rd   Sacred Brave                Blushing Meadows  Rosario J

Racing on the speed where he likes to be he stuck on really well off a fast pace to hold onto third. This was a very good run considering his post and the fast pace and i suspect his trainer will be very happy.

4th   Zombies Among Us  Joshua Stables                Ortiz J L

Talking of happy trainers this gelding ran a cracker from the car park to end up fourth and will have his trainer smiling from ear to ear after they picked him up at auction just a week ago. He has come a long way this year and looks to be still improving.
