Hyderabad Springs CalCup Surprise

Its funny what difference a week can make. The second round of the Calumet Cup unearthed a warm favorite for the 1600m flat event, in the shape of Julius’ Gordon de Bonaguil. Just seven days later and the Barnes Stable owned, Hyderabad showed the colt may not have things all his own way come finals day.

Newturf.comThe lightly raced Hello Pakata colt had shown improved form of late and continued that trend here with a narrow victory. It is certainly true however that the winner very much had conditions in his favor on this occasion and may need to improve further still if he is to confirm that form in the end of season final.
