European sprint hero Overdose returned to competition with a victory this weekend after a lengthy layoff and rehab for chronic hoof issues.

You can see the race replay at Sid Fernando’s blog here.

Although it was great to see O-ver-DOZE make a winning comeback, I doubt that effort was within 10 pounds of his best. I look forward with interest to how Timeform or Globeform will rate the performance.

Overdose is so quick out of the gate that he usually looks like he broke through the gate, but it is an optical illusion because of his amazing pace and lightning reflexes. An impressive horse who sold for peanuts as a youngster.
