Barbaro's full brother wins first race as a 3-year-old
Lentenor, the 3-year-old full brother of 2006 Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro, broke his maiden today at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale, Fla., winning a 1 1/16-mile race on the turf in his third career start.
"We've always known he was a good horse," Matz said. "He's a big boy, a bit immature, but he got a lot of experience today. We'll see how he comes out of it and take a little time to evaluate what might be next.
"Naturally, with a horse like this, there are thoughts of a Triple Crown race, but it's much too early to say whether he'd be far enough along to consider something like that."
