Derby Points: 14

Extremely talented individual with a ground covering stride that looks like he'll get better with age. If he handles the transition from two to three he's going to be one tough costumer this winter. His third in the Juvenile is not discouraging he simply did not have enough time to make up ground as he was really far back in the Juvenile. Should also be noted for mile and a sixteenth races at Keeneland they have to use the short stretch at Keeneland.

He hasn't put in a bad race yet. He's super talented and bred to run all day. He's a half to Point of Entry who was a superb long distance turf horse a couple years ago. He is only going to get better with age, and this is one to keep an eye on especially if he makes it to Belmont.

Very impressed with everything this colt has done so far. He's bred to run all day and will improve with age. He's a half brother to Breeders Cup Juvenile winner New Years Day, and his mother was a multiple graded stakes winner. He is bred to be special, and special he has certainly become.

His Delta Jackpot win was better than looked he showed he has the ability to win from anywhere on the racetrack which makes him very dangerous. He's a very workman like horse and just grinds out wins. With his breeding he's going to get better as he gets older which is a scary thought because he is already a really nice racehorse. 

Last Race: Delta Jackpot

This colt it out of a mare that always seems to throw runners the list of talents shes produced is pretty remarkable. It includes Keyed Entry, Justin Phillip, and Algorithms it's know surprise that this colt can run. Only worry is if he can stay healthy, and if he wants to run the Derby distance. Regardless this is a very nice colt that's going to improve next out.


Last Win: 2015 Champagne Stakes

This is one colt who is going to get better as the distances get longer. He showed that with an emphatic win in the Iroquois in his first try at two turns. With Colonel John on top, and Malibu Moon on bottom he's going to relish a mile a quarter. Can't wait to see whats in store for this very talented colt.

Last Win: 2015 Iroquois Stakes
Last Race: 2015 Breeders Cup Juvenile
Last Race Finish: 5th
