Two-year-old trotting colt Alarm Detector was an open-length winner at Saturday's 2017 O'Brien Awards even with an injury-shortened season. Trot Insider caught up Ben Baillargeon after the longtime horseman and multiple-O'Brien Award finalist took home his first trophy for trotting colt Alarm Detector at the 2017 O'Brien Awards Black Tie Gala on Saturday, February 3 in Mississauga, Ont.

Alarm Detector was almost perfect in his debut season, winning six of seven races and $276,000. Stakes victories included the Define The World and an elimination and final of the William Wellwood Memorial. That start was the final race of his rookie season, shortened due to injury.

Baillargeon discusses the nature of that injury, the plan for Alarm Detector as a three-year-old and also provides updates on Alarm Detector's stablemates, O'Brien Award finalists R First Class and Musical Rhythm.

This is the fifth in a series of several post-event video interviews with O'Brien Award finalists, sponsored by Horse Racing Alberta.
