Mr. Sekiguchi

Mr. Sekiguchi, who was purchased for $8 million as a yearling in 2004, may have found his game. He ran the 4 furlong bullet at Santa Anita on Saturday, which at 45.2 seconds was faster than the 32 other horses at this distance.

This so-far disappointing son of Storm Cat (previously nicknamed Fusaichi Slowpoke) showed some promise in his first race last month and may just be a late bloomer that will make some waves by the end of the year.

It will be interesting to watch Mr. Sekiguchi and his nephew The Green Monkey to see if the big risks taken by their owners even get close to paying off.
