Wait one second… isn’t it supposed to be Lin-sational? Not in horse racing! El Padrino is our Jeremy Lin, except, he is really good, and is not Taiwanese. But he is from New York. This Todd Pletcher trainee may not be the best all around horse, and he is definitely no Kobe Bryant, but this little horse can run… Distance! The Derby may not show the best horse to win, but it does allow the horse that can overcome the 1 1/4 mile mark in May. This horse may have what it takes to win it all.
Also, don’t forget to vote for the February Star of the Month in the poll below!
