Comments:

Unraced as a 2-year-old, he was 3rd in the Arkansas Derby then 16th in the Kentucky Derby. Skipped the Preakness then won Belmont Stakes. Next out he was 2nd in the Haskell Invitational at Monmouth to Rachel Alexandra, then won the Travers in the slop at Saratoga. Showed again how much he likes a sloppy track in the Jockey Club Gold Cup, winning by a length to become the first 3-year-old in 20 years to win that race, the Belmont, and the Travers in the same year.
