New York Derby

        TWISTED TOM is the NEW YORK DERBY CHAMPION. He exhibits to be one of the top 3-year-olds in the country, and proves arguably to be the best 3-year-old New York bred this season. After convincing wins in the Private Terms Stakes and Frederico Tesio Stakes, and after a strong showing in the Belmont Stakes (third of the Triple Crown Races), TWISTED TOM easily handled a top class field in the $150,000 2017 NEW YORK DERBY for trainer Chad Brown. The victory was really never in doubt, as by the 1/2 mile mark, Tom was sitting a menacing second by 1/2 a length waiting for jockey Feargal Lynch to ask him to make a move. By the top of the stretch drive he was in the lead and all that was left was for Lynch to hang on and let him cruise home, picking up the Winner's Trophy and the $96,000 winner's check.

        Twisted Tom is the sister to HORSES International broodmare HEIDI'S HOLIDAY. Chaplain Brad said: "We're so pleased for Tom's connections, Chad Brown, Feargal Lynch and of course the ownership group. It's such an amazing opportunity to watch Twisted Tom racing. None of us at HORSES International have had such a connection with World Class Horses before, and to see Heidi's brother become the NY DERBY CHAMPION was electrifying. It makes us all exuberant with anticipation waiting for Heidi's foal (Note: Heidi's Holiday presently is in foal to KENTUCKY DERBY CHAMPION FUSAICHI PEGASUS), and we can't wait to see Twisted Tom's niece or nephew winning races like their uncle. We all knew that Heidi's Holiday is royally bred, however seeing her brother winning Multiple Stakes Races is a positive affirmation that HORSES International recognizes quality horse stock."
