Description: Verrazano (KY) B , C, foaled January 27, 2010 (More Than Ready - Enchanted Rock, by Giant's Causeway) is now 6 for 7, his only loss came in the Kentucky Derby, with his romp in the 1 1/8 miles $1 million Grade I Haskell Invitational Stakes at Monmouth Park on July 28 2013. Verrazano has been well touted even before his first race and has proved himself to be a formidable Thoroughbred. We are witnessing greatness in this 3 year old colt. In his 6 victories he has won by a total margin of 46 lengths, 4 of those races in Grade I company. In the Haskell, jockey John Velazquez settled Verrazano off of pacesetter Oxbow until the far turn. Velazquez must have known he had a full horse at that point, he could be seen looking back to see when to ask Verrazano for his run. He ran by Oxbow rounding the far turn as Power Broker started to gain ground on the outside. When Velazquez decided at that moment to move Verrazano the race was over. He quickly opened up a commanding lead and went on to win by 9 3/4 lengths. Power Broker did finish 2nd, six lengths in front of Micromanage in 3rd. Verrazano has now won $1,551,300 for his owners Let's Go Stable, Tabor, Michael B., Magnier, Mrs. John and Smith, Derrick. He was bred by Emory A. Hamilton and his trainer is Todd Pletcher.
