Half-brother to El Dulce, won at 5f. Watch the market on debut as he represents a top barn. Has been working well in preparation for this.

Figure Eight historical data/form

Those boasting racecourse experience don't set a very high standard so the newcomers can come to the fore. Trial By Fire represents the powerful Doug O'Neill yard but Bob Baffert saddles a pair of runners in Coliseum and FIGURE EIGHT and the latter is preferred on the basis that his homework has been slightly better.
