Kentucky Derby BRIS Speed Rating Report: Holy Bull

Profile Picture: James Scully

February 7th, 2018

Audible put on a show making his two-turn debut and first start in the Road to the Kentucky Derby series, dominating the February 3 Holy Bull (G2) at Gulfstream Park by a widening 5 ½-length margin.

A New York-bred son of Into Mischief trained by two-time Kentucky Derby winner Todd Pletcher, Audible registered a whopping 105 BRIS Speed rating, the top figure so far in a 2018 qualifier. And that rating matches the highest number earned last year by leading Kentucky Derby contenders Good Magic and Bolt d’Oro, who are preparing for their sophomore reappearance.

Audible also registered a 112 BRIS Late Pace rating finishing full of run with Javier Castellano.

Free Drop Billy offered a nice middle move into contention and while he proved no match for the winner late, the Grade 1-winning juvenile wound up nearly eight lengths clear of third in a fine rebound performance from a ninth in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1). By Union Rags, the Dale Romans pupil earned a career-best 99 BRIS Speed rating.

After recording a 1-2 in a head-bobbing Kentucky Jockey Club (G2) last fall, Tiz Mischief and Enticed disappointed by finishing up the track in third and fourth, respectively, and supporters are hoping for a much-improved showing next time.

Here are the top BRIS Speed ratings so far in the Road to the Kentucky Derby series (90 and above):
