Horse to Watch: Deceived

Deceived is a two-year-old colt by multiple graded stakes winner Broken Vow out of a Known Fact mare. Trained by Leah Gyarmati, Deceived unfortunately had a few tough trips in his previous outings, all of which were in maiden special weights, and yet he always finished in the money.

After finishing third in his debut at Saratoga, he had two runner-up finishes at Belmont before impressively breaking his maiden in a one-mile contest over a sealed muddy track at Aqueduct. Unlike his previous outings, the Broken Vow colt was more forwardly placed in this race before taking the lead at the top of the stretch and drawing away to win by seven and a half lengths.

LATEST UPDATE (12/18/2013): Finished a far back, non-threatening third in the Damon Runyon Stakes at Aqueduct after jumping at the break. He was able to get himself into contention, but he weakened when they turned for home.
