Derby Points/Rank: 20 – 5th

Race Record: (4) 4-0-0

Earnings: $310,848

Breeding: Ghostzapper – Ivory Empress

Owner: Whitham Thoroughbreds, LLC

Trainer: Ian Wilkes

Last Race: Grade 3 Sam F Davis Stakes at Tampa Bay Downs, Finished 1st

Analysis: He certainly proved his worth with an impressive win over a nice field in the Sam F Davis Stakes at Tampa Bay. His final time was also a track record, and he ran the fastest speed figure of his career. However, the news since that race isn’t great as he exited his recent workout with a minor ankle injury. He’ll now miss the Tampa Bay Derby and point straight for the Bluegrass Stakes. This makes him questionable, and I’ll be looking for a new number one if the performance is good enough.
