I have been waiting for this moment for years. In blog posts and in the programs I have called for Duca di Como (Clodovil) to try his luck in the States. He is the best Scandinavian dirt miler ever and his early pace is something else.
Before September 18 I wrote this for a website about Swedish Racing.
This day has got a fantastic undercard with three Listed events all worth 400 000 SEK to the winner. In Nickes Minneslöpning (L) you will watch Scandinavia’s champion dirt miler, Duca di Como (Clodovil) starting at the rail. He has got a tremendous gate speed and his natural pace will have him in the lead early on. A normal race for “Duca” sees him with an easy lead into the first turn. Then he will be getting a breather before going away again into the last turn. He will be hard to catch if at his best.
Of course he won it easily, and in exactly the way predicted. It is time for the American horse players to learn about ”Duca” and to make it easier this is videos from two of his dirt wins.
To make things even easier, this is a link to all his starts in Sweden.
And why should you bother about Duca di Como? Because he is going to the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile!
