Last Race: Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby at Santa Anita, Finished 2nd
Analysis: He finished a decent second in the Santa Anita Derby and seems to be getting a little better with each race. The Santa Anita Derby didn’t impress me much at all, though, explaining his low ranking. He’ll be a pace presence in the race, but that might be it.
