Very nice. A big, nearly black colt, and I'm pleased to see his sire, Temple City, carrying on Dynaformer's bloodline.
I wonder if his connections will be trying him on dirt (the oh-so strong pull of Derby fever?) in the future? He clearly loves the green stuff, so it would be nice to see a good young American grass horse developed to take on Euros in our turf races.

He was really exciting today. Very promising grass horse.

Very attractive colt with a seemingly bright future if everything keeps going right for him.

I guess it's possible, he has pretty versatile pedigree for turf and dirt. He trains pretty well on it too, 1:11 2-5 not bad for a work.

It sounds like distance won't be a problem.

It was not the way that Bolo made the jump from a maiden race to the $79,800 Eddie Logan Stakes that impressed trainer Carla Gaines at Santa Anita on Saturday. Nor was it the way the colt fought off a challenge on the lead from Stormy Liberal before pulling away to win the one-mile turf stakes by 4 1/2 lengths. What caught the attention of Gaines was Bolo’s behavior in the winner’s circle.

He’s not even blowing,” she said. Bolo seemed to handle the job with minimal difficulty, leaving Gaines elated with his rapid development.

“You know he’s doing it easy,” Gaines said. “He’s not a rank horse. Just let him settle into his stride, and he’ll go on forever.”

That was a beautiful win. And he behaved well in the post parade compared to his last race. He literally bucked Mike Smith off his back in the post parade. It was kind of comical, he looked like he thought he was in a rodeo, a bucking bronc! Thankfully Smith was ok after the colt's crazy antics. It seems he's growing up into quite the professional race horse.

That was effortless. Temple City has been siring some really nice horses.
