Race Record: (2) 1-1-0
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.
