Last Race: Grade 3 Withers Stakes at Aqueduct, Finished 1st
Analysis: Now on a four race win streak as he stomped the competition in the Withers Stakes. Like I’ve been saying though I am very skeptical about what he is facing in these New York prep races so far. The jury will be out on him until the fields toughen up, but for now you can’t deny that he belongs in the top 10 of the rankings.
