Could this be the 2011 Kentucky Derby Winner?


He has my early vote. Brethren romped to victory yesterday in the Sam F Davis Stakes at Tampay Bay Downs to remain undefeated. He is the half-brother of last year's Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver. The WinStar colt is also trained by Todd Pletcher and is out of Distorted Humor and the mare Supercharger who happens to be the granddaughter of the incredible mare in my last post, Dance Number from Northern Dancer's 1979 crop of foals. Supercharger was under my radar in 2007 when I was finishing the book with her first foals just hitting the track but her outstanding dam Get Lucky certainly had established a presence already.
