HALLANDALE BEACH, FLA. (AP) - Barbaro’s little brother is still waiting for his first win.

Nicanor finished second in an eight-horse maiden race Saturday at Gulfstream Park, falling short of breaking his maiden for the third straight time.

A full brother to the 2006 Kentucky Derby winner, who was badly injured in the Preakness and eventually succumbed several months later, Nicanor simply couldn’t run down Glittermans Cartel in the stretch. The 3-5 favorite finished second for the second straight outing.

He was 10th in his debut after taking a misstep at the start of a race Jan. 31.

Nicanor’s connections are the same team that were behind Barbaro three years ago: The Dynaformer colt is owned by Roy and Gretchen Jackson, and trained by Michael Matz.
