Lentenor, Barbaro's brother, 2nd in Gulfstream race

Wave's Terminesi says doctors think he has brain tumor

February 18, 2010|By Sports Digest

A full brother of ill-fated 2006 Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro finished second in a race at Gulfstream Park in his second start of the year. Lentenor finished a half-length behind winner Doubles Partner in Wednesday's 1 1/8-mile race on the turf course at the Hallandale Beach, Fla., track. The race drew a field of 11 3-year-olds. Like Barbaro, who broke down in the Preakness, the 3-year-old Lentenor is owned by Gretchen and Roy Jackson and trained by Michael Matz. Matz had said that a strong performance in Wednesday's race could put Lentenor in position to run next month in the Florida Derby, a Kentucky Derby prep.
