Athene Noctura Stables’ Odi et Amo found everything to love and nothing to hate at the Kentucky Horse Park on Sunday, when he pulled away to a dominant victory in the featured $20,000 Jay Trump starter allowance hurdle at the 46th annual High Hope Steeplechase.Trained by Camden’s Allison Fulmer and ridden by Kieran Norris, Odi et Amo finished 8 1/2 lengths clear of Gil Johnston’s Syros. Bruce Smart Jr.’s Orchestra Leader finished third, 14 1/2 lengths farther back, and Bill Pape’s El Season was fourth in a field of seven.Odi et Amo ran the Jay Trump’s 2 1/8 miles in 4:02.40 on firm ground at the race course north of Lexington. He laid off the early pace, made his move two fences from home, and won in hand.The six-year-old Inamorato gelding takes his name from the first line of a work by the Roman poet Catullus and translates from the Latin as “I hate and I love.”
