A Big, Friendly Giant

Friday, June 10, 2011

Without a ton of distance in his pedigree, I don’t know how many people are going to support Prime Cut, who was third in the Peter Pan here on May 14, in Saturday’s Belmont Stakes. He’s been a consistent sort, no worse than third in six starts since last December, and last year Drosselmeyer used his second-place finish in the Peter Pan as a springboard to win the Belmont. Another similarity is that like Drosselmeyer,  the 16.1 hands-tall Prime Cut looks absolutely gorgeous in the days leading up to the race.  But what I like most about the Bernstein colt is his personality. Assistant trainer Ricky Giannini calls him a big, friendly giant, and if you watch this video, you’ll see why.
