Home of the Brave (IRE)

Home of the Brave returns to Southern California after finishing off the board in last year’s Turf Sprint at Santa Anita. Since that performance, he has not been worse than third in four subsequent starts.

Home of the Brave has shown a preference for firm turf, a condition he likely will encounter at Del Mar and trainer Hugo Palmer believes he also will prosper on the course configuration.

"The plan has always been to work back from the Breeders’ Cup Mile,” trainer Hugo Palmer told Sporting Life in August. “I think the fast ground and the two turns will be right up his street there. That will be absolutely perfect for him and if he is ever going to get a mile, that is where he will get it."

Palmer also believes Home of the Brave benefits from plenty of time off between races. In following that strategy, the Irish-born horse has not raced since finishing third in the Park Stakes at Doncaster in England Sept. 16.

Palmer is regarded as a rising star after obtaining his trainer’s license in 2011. His Newmarket, England-based stable has improved its stats each season. Prior to starting his own yard, Palmer worked for some of the world’s leading Thoroughbred operations.
