The Date A 'Star In The Making' Is

Expected To Put On A Show!

Yes, That Is Right: A Star Is In The Making !!!


That 'Star In The Making' is Nysos, a 2yo bay colt by Nyquist – Zetta, by Bernardini, trained by Bob Baffert.

Nysos won his career debut by 10 1/2 lengths on October 21, 2023, 9th race, MdSpWt61k, at Santa Anita, earning a whopping Beyer Speed Figure of 96 for 6 furlongs in 1:08.97.

Yes, that is right: 6 furlongs in 1:08.97.


Are you kidding me a 2yo running 6 furlongs in 1:08.97?

Unreal!!!


As you can tell: I'M PUMPED UP !!!


Nysos was put into a Keeneland November breeding sale for $130,000 in 2021 as a 6-month old baby but no one wanted him at that price.

Then the breeder tried to get rid of him again one year later by putting him on the Fasig-Tipton October yearling 2022 for $150,000.

No one wanted him at that price either.

Then the following spring (2023) the breeder tried to get rid of him again by putting him on the OBS spring 2-year-old 2023 sale, presumably for a lot higher than $150,00 due to his maturity was beginning to show signs of a good racehorse.

This time he was bought for $550,000 by Baoma Corp and he was given to trainer Bob Baffert to train.

For whatever the reasons he was not put into a race until October 21, 2023, 9th race, MdSpWt61k, at Santa Anita.

Oh boy! It was worth the wait!

He dominated a good field.

As for his next race I expect Baffert to put him in the $200,000-guaranteed Los Alamitos Futurity (G2) at 1 1/16 miles (on dirt) [Saturday, Dec. 16, 2023].

So get ready but be forewarn: You'll be getting a 1/5 horse in that race at best.

Come to think of it I think he'll be 1/9 -- yes, that is right: 1/9.

Hey, a win is a win and it's like free money.

Stay tuned!
