I caught some video of a lovely two-year-old colt by the name of Worth a Punt, who was schooling in the Del Mar paddock this morning for trainer Howard Zucker. Worth a Punt is by Mutakddim, out of the Australian mare Finally. He will be making his second career start for owner Rachel Pagones in the 4th race at Del Mar on Saturday, a six furlong Maiden Special Weight event for two-year-olds.
As Zucker explained, punt is the word for a wager in England, and this colt definitely looks like he's worth a punt. With his breeding, he also may be one to watch if he tries the turf.
