Comments:

Named the Champion 2-year-old male in Canada, he won four straight races before fading to finish 12th in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile last year. This year he was a surprise winner in the Kentucky Derby at odds of 50-1, then 2nd in the Preakness to Rachel Alexandra, and 3rd in the Belmont Stakes to Summer Bird. Finished 3rd in the West Virginia Derby at Mountaineer in August. Last out he was a disappointing 6th in the Goodwood, never mounting his usual late close. Perhaps he doesn't like California?
