Trainer Jamie Osborne to be the Toast Of New York tonight in the Belmont Derby Invitational
The improvement that trainer Jamie Osborne has brought out of his colt Toast Of New York is exceptional. Last August Toast Of New York finished only fifth on his debut in a maiden stakes at Leicester and has now gone on to win the UAE Derby in his last outing.
Tonight Osborne will hope to be celebrating with connections again when he runs his stable-star in the valuable Belmont Derby Invitational. Back on turf the big colt will have to get the better of a strong international field that includes Ballydoyle’s Adelaide, the French Gailo Chop and the US fancy Bobby’s Kitten.
Michael Buckley’s favourite will come to the race off a long break, but is as “fit as a flea” according to connections. If he pulls it off Osborne is certain to the Toast Of New York.
