Trinniberg has world-class speed, but may not last

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A horse costing $21,000 bought by chance could very likely be the early leader among the field of 20 for the Kentucky Derby. Whether the colorful Trinniberg can stay there over the mile and a quarter after never running a race longer than seven furlongs is the biggest question.

 

The Teuflesberg colt owned by Shivananda Parbhoo and trained by his father Bisnath is built for speed after winning two stakes races - the Swale at Gulfstream Park and Bay Shore at Aqueduct by a combined nine lengths.

 

Other trainers and owners in the field are concerned Trinniberg might take their horses out if they chase an unreasonable pace, while Trinniberg jockey Willie Martinez says they're prepared to "rain on a lot of people's parades" and win the Derby outright.
