Derby Points/Rank: 4 – 26th

Race Record: (2) 1-1-0

Earnings: $51,200

Breeding: Bodemeister – Indy’s Wind

Owner:  Winstar Farm, LLC, S F Bloodstock LLC, and China Horse Club, LLC

Trainer: Bob Baffert

Last Race: Grade 3 Sham Stakes at Santa Anita, Finished 2nd

Analysis: Another Bob Baffert trained horse who looks to have a bright future.  In just his second lifetime start he battled Gormley to the wire in the Grade 3 Sham Stakes before losing in a photo finish.  His post race gallop out was strong, and his willingness to battle back was encouraging.  I’m expecting him to move forward off that race which is why I have him ranked over Gormley for now.
