Happy Birthday, New Barbaro Brother

Tim Woolley Racing has the scoop, as usualthe latest full sibling arrived in the early hours this morning. Thanks to La Ville Rouge for having the great timing to deliver before I start my guest-blogging gig!

NBC has an article with a few updates on his yearling full brother, Nicanor:

Born March 15, 2006, Nicanor has quickly grown into his long legs and broadening chest. “His head is quite a bit bigger and there’s a larger amount of white in the face (than Barbaro) and he doesn’t have the two white socks in front. This colt is leggy, more so,” adds Gretchen. “A shade lighter bay than Barbaro, who was a true, dark bay. He doesn’t resemble him so much now, but we hope he stays healthy and can run close to what his brother did.”

The New York Times has an article today detailing the planning that is going into this year’s Derby television coverage and how a very great deal of that coverage will revolve around Barbaro. It seems to have been sensitively thought through, and I’m sure they’ve built in plenty of time to let this year’s crop of three-year-olds shine as well. Two weeks to go…in the meantime, good luck to the Jackson-owned, Matz-trained filly Eres Magica this Sunday at Keeneland!
