Punters have heavily backed the Steven Pateman trained Pentelligentsia at Sale today

A plunge on a horse engaged at Sale today, that can’t win on paper, has occurred overnight.

The horse is called PENTELLIGENTSIA (Pentire-Blinding). He’s down to run in race 3. And he’s firmed from $6 to $4.70 with more money expected.

But race followers are scratching their heads because he just has too many things against him.

And they are:

He has raced 13 times thus far and NEVER won a race or a barrier trial
He is perhaps past his best now that he’s a 6YO
He has not competed in a race for 2 years
He ran last of 7 in a barrier trial 2 weeks ago
In 2 of his 13 starts he has finished tailed-off
In 5 starts on wet tracks he has placed just once. It is wet today.
He resumes today in a 3200m race!

Soooo, how? Why the money?

I can’t see it. In his favour, I guess, he is by a G1 Melbourne Cup producing sire from a mare who was Gr 1 placed. Her only other runner as a mum to date has won twice in Melbourne.

But first up over 3200m from a 2-year absence?

Geelong-based trainer Steven Pateman will be a genius if he pulls this training feat off.

Pentelligentsia will be ridden by 1.5kg claiming apprentice Thomas Sadler today.
