Once again breeders, Headley & Nancy Bell & Nato win with ANALYZE IT at Del Mar in the G3 Cecil B. DeMille S.
"TDN Rising Star" Analyze It (Point of Entry) followed up a sparkling debut victory at Belmont with a dominant wire-to-wire score on the West Coast in Sunday's GIII Cecil B. DeMille S. Sent straight to the front, Analyze It took pressure from longshot King Eddie through a quarter-mile in :23.40 and appeared to be traveling well within himself down the backstretch. He shrugged off his pace rival on the far turn and spurted clear with a swift turn of foot turning for home. It was simply a matter of how far from there, and Analyze It crossed the wire an easy 4 1/4 lengths clear of Pubilius Syrus. "Wow he's an amazing horse to work with and be around," said Jose Hernandez, assistant to trainer Chad Brown. "I was a little worried early when the horse came up outside and tried to put some pressure on him. But I know this horse and he can be on the pace or off it. As soon as they turned for home, he was gone." Let go at odds of 13-1 Analyze It dropped a :22 4/5 closing quarter-mile en route to a decisive 6 1/4-length victory in his one-mile unveiling at Belmont Oct. 28.
