While Global Campaign handled the 9 furlongs of the Peter Pan quite adequately, trainer Stanley Hough stated after the race that the one-mile Dwyer Stakes (USA-III) on July 6 or the 9-furlong Ohio Derby (G3) on June 22 are also under consideration for the son of Curlin. The most likely determinant for the colt's next start will be how well the colt bounces back from his effort and from minor injuries suffered during the running when he clipped heels with a rival, but another consideration could be whether he really wants the Belmont distance.
Like Cutting Humor, Global Campaign is a great-grandson of Tour, who as noted in my previous post on this family ("After Sunland Park Derby, Cutting Humor on Tour to Kentucky Derby," 3/25/2009) was a sprinter and founded a generally speed-oriented family that includes the extremely fast triple Grade I winner Zensational (by Unbridled's Song) and dual Grade I winner Bolt d'Oro (by Medaglia d'Oro), who was essentially a miler. Global Campaign is, of course, a half brother to Bolt d'Oro, being out of the A.P. Indy mare Globe Trot.
Tour's influence on Bolt d'Oro's stamina may be instructive in this case. Her daughter Trip, dam of Globe Trot, was essentially a miler in spite of being by Lord At War, a sire who often imparted a measure of stamina. Her stakes wins were all at 7 or 8.5 furlongs. In spite of being by the staying A.P. Indy, Trip's daughter Globe Trot was also best at a mile or a little more, and her only other foal besides Bolt d'Oro and Global Campaign is the Grade II-placed listed stakes winner Sonic Mule (by Distorted Humor), a straight-up sprinter.
Like Medaglia d'Oro, Curlin tends to throw stamina, but it is worth noting that Bolt d'Oro was better at 8 than 9 furlongs in spite of three consecutive crosses of his female family to sires that definitely stayed further than 9 furlongs and could sire runners with similar capacities. Global Campaign's future direction may depend on whether he is more his father's son or stays closer to his family's trip.
