    Bernardini - Travers 2006

    by Ghost Moth

    Bernardini is winner of the 2006 Preakness Stakes and races in the Breeders Cup Classic Disvision. Having only lost his first race, Bernardini next won the Withers hand-ridden when Javier Castellano dropped the riding crop. He next won the Preakness, and was my second favorite behind Barbaro because in the Withers I was impressed by his professional running style, he stalked perfectly and closed with no doubt. He remained undefeated, proving he could stalk or lead, and often without breaking a sweat, until finally being defeated at the ultra-competitive Breeders Cup Classic on November 4th. He was outrun by Invasor in the stretch, placing second.
