Comments:

He made his debut in a maiden special weight at Gulfstream Park then graduated to an allowance race there. He shipped to Tampa Bay Downs to win the Tampa Bay Derby in his first stakes start, then moved on to Aqueduct to win the Wood Memorial. After starting his career a perfect 4 for 4, he was a disappointing 14th in the Kentucky Derby and was rested after. He came back to win 2 starts at Monmouth, the Pegasus and the Haskell Invitational, before finishing 7th as the favorite in the Travers and then 4th as the favorite in the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile. He made his final U.S. start in the Cigar Mile finishing third and was transferred from Todd Pletcher to Aidan O'Brien in Ireland. He made his first European start in the Lockinge Stakes at Newbury finishing third, and then came back to finish a close second in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot.
