Tejano Twist Racing News

Tejano Twist put himself on the 2022 Road to the Kentucky Derby at his ninth start with a second-place finish in the Gun Runner S., albeit some distance behind Epicenter. The Tom Durant homebred is by Practical Joke, a multiple Grade 1-winning sprinter, out of the Grade 3-placed Cuvee mare Haley’s Lolipop. The family’s black type form is mostly over sprint distances, so Tejano Twist will have to outrun his pedigree if he is to stay the Derby trip.
