Last Race: Grade 1 Breeders Cup Juvenile Stakes at Santa Anita; Finished 1st

Analysis: The Breeders Cup Juvenile champ, and 2 Year Old Horse of the Year will begin the year ranked number one which will come as no surprise.  His race at Santa Anita is head and shoulders above anyone aiming for the Kentucky Derby at the moment.  This week he’ll be making the first start of his 3 year old year in the Grade 3 Holy Bull Stakes at Gulfsream Park.  A win there will keep him in the number one spot.
