The Gomper – Why He’s a Horse to Follow This Triple Crown Season

In 2012, a 2-year-old colt by new sire Curlin caught my eye. I researched his background and determined he had a strong potential to be a classic contender at three. I was right. That horse was named Palace Malice and he would go on to be the 2013 Belmont Stakes winner.

This week I have been looking at a horse the Dudes have been talking about named THE GOMPER, owned by Bloom Racing Stable LLC ( After researching his connections, delving into his pedigree, watching his races and studying his overall background I have come to the conclusion that The Gomper may be a horse to watch in the 3-year-old division this year.

If you haven’t been looking at The Gomper it’s understandable. He’s not a stakes winner and for now he’s just a maiden winner with a quirky name. But a quirky named horse sounds a lot better on a horse after he’s won the Kentucky Derby (i.e. Lil E. Tee or Mine That Bird). Don’t take that as my way of saying The Gomper will be a Derby winner or even a classic winner. That’s a very bold statement for anyone to make in a game with so many potential pitfalls. However, I will go out on record as saying that The Gomper might be a legit race horse and one to keep an eye on this year.
