Twilight Eclipse 2.0? Both grandsons of Dynaformer. Both geldings. Both made our jaws drop watching their debuts. The video tells an incredible, hard to fathom, easy to embrace story.

While waiting to go out on Saratoga Lake on a rainy Tuesday afternoon, Dale Romans told Terry about a 2-year-old son of Temple City who won impressively at Arlington Park. Dale watched the race because he saw the favorite run second at Churchill and knew he was rumored to be one of Steve Asmussen’s better juveniles. A couple phone calls, and a few days later, the colt is ours.

Watch his maiden win on August 2 at Arlington.

He’s the five horse who is last early and closes like a freight train!

 
You HAVE to watch his debut. You won’t believe your eyes. Yes, the horse who is dead last at the top of the stretch wins after being as many as 18 lengths behind going just six furlongs. One person Tweeted after the race, “You’d have to hire a sherpa to find him!” Our own Jeff Lifson watched the race for the first time and couldn’t stop laughing while saying, “This is one of the freakiest races I’ve ever seen. Are you kidding me?”
