Trainer Michael Matz switched Nicanor to the turf for his fourth career start, and it clearly suited the colt well as he demolished a maiden special weight field by 15 1/4 lengths at Delaware Park May 13.
The 3-year-old Dynaformer colt took the lead early and never looked back. He is a full brother to 2006 Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) winner Barbaro, who also broke his maiden at Delaware on the turf.
Nicanor finished the 1 1/16-mile race in a moderate time of 1:46.31.
