Ode to the Little Horse that could.

He was a small little gelding not much to him he was pitch black and had the heart of a lion. He was the ultimate racehorse, and his name was Shared Belief. It broke my heart into a million pieces when I found out about his passing due to colic. I have decided to go back and look at all the great moments Shared Belief has provided the sport.

I first heard of Shared Belief when he was a two year old I watched his debut win on the 19th of Oct. 2013 on TVG and all I could say was wow, and where would this brilliant animal be making his first stakes start. I didn't have to wait to long as the plucky little black gelding came back on the 10th of Nov. 2013 in the Hollywood Prevue Stakes where he absolutely demolished his competition from there the sky was the limit.  

2013 Hollywood Prevue Stakes 

The next step for Shared Belief was the grade one Cashcall Futurity his first start in grade one company. In this race he would beat Del Mar Futurity winner Tamarando,  Front Runner Stakes wi…

First Derby Six 1/2/15

1. Brody's Cause 
Giant's Causeway- Sweet Breanna by Sahm
Jockey: Corey J. Lanerie
Trainer: Dale L. Romans
Owner: Albaugh Family Stable

Career Record:  Starts: 4
Firsts: 2
Seconds: 0
Thirds: 1
Earnings: $523,138

Derby Points: 14 
Extremely talented individual with a ground covering stride that looks like he'll get better with age. If he handles the transition from two to three he's going to be one tough costumer this winter. His third in the Juvenile is not discouraging he simply did not have enough time to make up ground as he was really far back in the Juvenile. Should also be noted for mile and a sixteenth races at Keeneland they have to use the short stretch at Keeneland.
