Derby Points/Rank: 14 – 6th
Race Record: (4) 3-0-1
Breeding: Into Mischief – Halo Humor
Owner: Klaravich Stables, Inc, and William Lawrence
Trainer: Chad Brown
Last Race: Grade 1 Breeders Cup Juvenile Stakes, Finished 3rd
Analysis: He was a long way back in the Breeders Cup Juvenile as Classic Empire and Not This Time were much the best, but he beat everyone else in that race easily. He’s also a dual Grade 1 winner so you can see that he has a lot of back class. We’ll see if he can continue to develop as a 3 year old.
