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.

Fabforum The son of Dynaformer is trained by Michael Matz, who guided the career of Barbaro.

"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."
