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. Has yet to work since his last effort, but that's not too concerning expect him to make a return in either the Fountain of Youth or Rebel Stakes.

Only going to get better as he gets older and as the races get longer. He has the pedigree to be a superstar going long being a half sibling to the very good grass horse Point of Entry. With the Bernardini on top he will be blooming later as well I fully expect him to start peaking at Belmont time. That being said I still think he is a serious threat to the Kentucky Derby picture.

Last Win: Maiden Special Weight 9/12/15 @ Belmont Park

Very impressed with everything he has done so far in his career he finished off his two year old year with a very good win in the Remsen Stakes. He's another that is going to get better as the distances get longer with Tapit on top and a Dixie Union mare on bottom. Has been working steadily since his Remsen win and looks to return in the Holy Bull Stakes.

Very big win in the Los Alamitos Futurity has shot this one up my list. Working steadily towards his return and fully expect this one to be a very serious racehorse. He's another that will get better with longer distances. His second in the Kentucky Jockey Club wasn't bad at all either which moved him forward enough to bound home in the Los Al Futurity.

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 
Last Race Finish: 1st

Love the way he finished in the Sham and fully expect this one to improve once he gains some maturity and gets in longer races. He seems to have loads of potential and I only expect this one to go up from here. 

Last Race: Sham Stakes 
Last Race Finish: 2nd 
Last Win: 12/5/15 Maiden Special Weight @ Los Alamitos
