Such is the case with Twelve Tribes who upstaged his more fashionably bred stablemate – again.
Twelve Tribes ($9.40) and Geovanni Franco took to the wet-fast track like a duck to water and won the $35,000 Luke Kruytbosch on New Year’s Eve Wednesday at Turf Paradise. Finishing second was Taelyns Prince with Twelve Tribes’ stablemate and favorite, Edison, finishing third in the field of seven 3-year-olds.
On November 14 Twelve Tribes won the Jack Coady Stakes with Taelyns Prince second; Edison struggled to finish fifth.
Owned by Charles Garvey and trained by Robertino Diodoro, Twelve Tribes covered the 1 1/16 miles in 1:43.56 for his fifth win in nine efforts.
