Captaintreacherous has won over $2.3 million in his career. During his first season of racing, he hit the 1:50 mark or better four times. No horse has ever done that.
He has gone to the gate eight times this season and won seven times, amassing over $1.4 million.
The horse is trained by Tony Alagna and will be driven by Tim Tetrick.
This will be a special evening. There will be six horses to challenge the Captain. Remember that even Secretariat lost the Wood Memorial the year he won the Triple Crown. Each of those six would have a permanent reputation boost were they to defeat him.
Post time is expected to be about 9:30 p.m. That means much of the day’s activity can still be completed with time remaining to go see this tremendous horse.
I know my plans include being at Hoosier Park for much of the evening. There will be $750,000 at stake in purses and a lot of great competition on the card. First post is 5:30. See you there!
