the story of Speedboat Beach was launched on December 4, when the brilliantly nimble pony showed another side to winning $100,000 of Cecil B. DeMille (G3T) Shares at Del Mar.

After the race, coach Bob Baffert compared Speed ​​Boat Beach to his grandfather, Bayern who Baffert coached for two 1st grade wins and over $4.4 million.

Baffert told TVG: “I think he can be like his father, the older he gets, the further he will go. “Bayern doesn’t want to go long until the end of his 3-year-old career. But it’s good to know that he can go two turns and he can go further. So now we have (many) choose (on) the pitch or dirt.”

Bayern really hit his stride later in his 3-year-old campaign, ending 2014 with a thrilling Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) victory on a star-studded field. However, unlike his versatile 2-year-old son, Bayern have only raced on the ground in his 15 trips as a guest.

<p>“It looked like the other horse was going to come back and catch him, but he jumped in and turned around,” Baffert said.  “It’s great to see something like that. He’s just that kind of horse.
