In the words of President George W. Bush, “Fool me once … shame on you. If … fool me you can’t get fooled again.”
We got the gist. Apparently, though, no one’s been heeding the advice of the former chief executive, at least when it comes to the young horses of trainer Keith Desormeaux stepping up in the springtime for any number of Triple Crown preps. For instance:
In January of 2022, Desormeaux came out firing with the Midnight Lute colt Call Me Midnight to win the Lecomte Stakes (G3) at Fair Grounds, knocking off 3-year-olds trained by Steve Asmussen, Brad Cox, and Mark Casse. He paid $59 for a $2 bet.
