Eu Tambem runs in blue, in Derby
by Handicappers / Globeform
Printer-friendly version

Eu Tambem has been transferred to Godolphin and will run in the UAE Derby (G2).

Having put up a smashing performance over the Nad Al Sheba track in the Maktoum Challenge III (G2), the Brazilian champion has every right to improve again. In fact, this could be the new Invasor – and a name for the future. He was in a class of his own when slamming Singing Poet by 5 lengths over the DWC distance on Super Thursday. His Brazilian form was even better. Take a look at his CV, and maybe you will realise why he was the 2-1 shot of the year last time out.

This young colt is a very exciting prospect. He beat a high-class field of horses taking solid formlines into the contest as he performed to Globeform 115+ in the Premio Nacional Argentine Derby (G1) over 12.5 furlongs at Palermo last November. Eu Tambem outpointed Boca Tamposo by 1 ˝ lengths, with Barbie Parade third, Body Gold fourth and Capo Pete fifth. These are not exactly bread and butter horses.

His runner-up, Boca Tamposo, was coming off a win in a minor event, and had earlier been second to Body Gold. Third placed Barbie Parade – the only filly in the race - had been second, beaten 2 ˝ lengths, behind Emotion Parade in the GP Polla de Potrancas (G1) in September. She was then second again, once more beaten 2 ˝ lengths by Emotion Parade, in the GP de Seleccion (G1) in October. Emotion Parade is a high class filly, who went on to win her third G1 in the GP Enrique Azebal (G1) at San Isidro on November 4. She was also second in the 1000 Guineas (G1) in July.

Body Gold, beaten 5 ˝ length into fourth behind Eu Tambem, had won the Clasico Eduardo Casey (G2), a prep race for the G Premio Nacional, by no less than 8 lengths, beating the favourite Dancing For Me (winner of Argetine 2000 Guineas, G1) very easily.

Capo Pete was coming off a fourth place finish in the Gran Premio Jockey Club (G1) at San Isidro, and had previously won a minor event over 10 furlongs at San Isidro.

Clearly a high class runner in the making, the 4-year-old Eu Tambem put up a very good performance in the Gran Premio Nacional (G1). The race was worth around $170,000, and he landed it in good style. He got the measure of the arly leader Boca Tamposo in mid-stretch, and ran on for a 1 ˝-length win. There may be more to come from this son of Wild Event. That was his sixth win in seven starts, and he became the first foreign-bred contender to win this race. He is a bit special on the track and he is well bred too. Let’s take a look at his pedigree.

His sire Wild Event has not been noted as a particular influence for stamina, but his dam comes from the same family as Theatrical (won Breeders’ Cup Turf, G1, etc) and Eu Tambem does have stamina in his pedigree – we also know he stays well. Wild Event is by the top class dirt runner Wild Again (Icecapade), who won the first edition of the Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) as 4-year-old, defeating Preakness winner Gate Dancer and Slew O’Gold. Wild Again had previously won the Meadowlands Cup (G1) – now a G2 event – and two Grade 2 events; the Oaklawn H, and New Orleans H. Wild Again won 6 of 16 races that year, but raced just four times as a 5-year-old, with a repeat win in the Meadowlands Cup (G1) as his best result.

Eu Tambem’s dam Charmosa is a daughter of the Argentinean stallion Fain, who comes from the solid Ballymoss line, while his second dam, Charming Cindy, was a daughter of Gallant Man – who was runner-up in the Kentucky Derby (G1).

This colt probably gets most of his stamina from the bottom half of his pedigree. Based on breeding, he should act on turf, and his ability to handle a sloppy dirt track also augurs well in that respect.

What's more, Eu Tambem is used to winning most of his races. Sometimes, that counts for a lot.
