Adrenalin Early Favorite For CalCup Glory

The first round of Team Buzz’s in-house championships, the Calumet Cup has taken place and already looks as if it will be every bit as competitive as last season’s triumphant introduction. This opening round is restricted to those horses which were registered for the Breeders’ Cup, in addition to the standard criteria.

Newturf.comThere is no doubt that Adrenalin is bred to be a class act, being a daughter of Chase Bloodstock’s flag-bearer, Gibraltar. Having already demonstrated considerable ability by finishing second in her Breeders’ Cup qualifier, she put up an impressive display here in beating the stable’s other runner, Urban Fugitive, by a clear margin. Even at this early stage, Adrenalin already appears to be the one they will all have to beat come finals day.
