The Sinner Is You broke his maiden professionally, racing wide and working through traffic, putting away a field of 10 horses at Belmont Park. Braking from post 7 The Sinner Is You raced four then three wide in pursuit from mid pack, came under coaxing at the three-eighths, angled five wide into upper stretch, dug in under a drive steadily gaining in tandem with the majority of the field through the final furlong on the leader and was up in the last jumps to prevail.
We spoke with trainer Jeremiah Englehart after the race and Jeremiah laughingly said, “I can win races for Hibiscus Stables.”
We also spoke with Hibiscus Stables CEO Mike Oliveto after the race. Mike said, “It appears that the lightbulb finally went on for this horse. He looked like a veteran out there racing very wide and in a lot of traffic. The biggest break you can give a horse is class relief and switching to a leading jockey is also very big. We’re glad to see this horse earn his diploma. Extremely exciting for the partners and the horse.”
The Sinner Is You earned $22,550 for Sunday’s victory.
We’ll see how The Sinner Is You comes out of the race and Jeremiah will point him accordingly
