Divisidero Returns to Training; Could Run in February

The exciting 3yo turf horse Divisidero, who won the American Turf Stakes (gr. II) and Pennine Ridge Stakes this year with impressive late rallies, has resumed training at Silver Spring Farms after a summer break and could return to the races in February.

Trained by Buff Bradley, Divisidero most recently finished seventh in the July 4th Belmont Derby (gr. I) at Belmont Park, a disappointing effort given his strong efforts earlier in the season. But according to the Churchill Downs Barn Notes for November 8th, Bradley is happy with how Divisidero has matured during his break.

“He’s back on the farm doing some jogging,” Bradley was quoted as saying. “I’ll actually be going down there next week so I’ll be seeing him then. It looks like he’s filled out quite a bit and we’re real anxious to get him back. The main thing is that we got to turn him out and he got a lot of time which is a good thing.”

His last race was to bad to believe. He had to have been injured or something else was wrong with him. I do not remember anything being brandied about. I do look forward to his comeback.
