Ouch - $4.2 million spend and debut yielding 7th place
Not every premium purchase will be a Royal Delta (although she was defeated today too) yet this really was/is a head scratching investment: Mr. Besilu (acquired at Keeneland's 2010 September Yearling Sale) for $4.2 million.
Owner Benjamin Leon (Besilu Stables) dumped Todd Pletcher as the trainer for Bill Mott before this colt made his debut today at 4-yrs old with Mike Smith up. He looked in all honesty less than impressive from the opening of the gates. Obviously it isn't any horse's fault someone paid perhaps too much of him/her but still its make you wonder what the buyer was thinking.
