The greatest start by a 2yo that American racing has seen since Uncle Mo (USA), and the fastest U.S. 2yo colt since Uncle Mo.

Won 1400m Del Mar Futurity (G1) in second start in 1:22 4/5, overcoming a poor start and wide trip to defeat a quality field.

Dominated 1700m FrontRunner (G1) at Santa Anita in third start in a sizzling 1:43 1/5, drawing off by 7 ¾ lengths in the fastest-rated performance by a U.S. 2yo.

Historic U.S. 2yo speed figures: 103 Beyer — fastest by a 2yo since 2014; 4 ¾ Ragozin & -1 ½ Thoro-Graph — both fastest by a 2yo in 2017 and fastest in recent years.

Eye-catching 1300m debut winner at Del Mar; unlucky third in Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) as the race’s biggest favorite since Dehere (USA) in 1993.

Won 1700m San Felipe (G2) at Santa Anita over G1 winner McKinzie (USA) in 1:42.71, earning a 101 Beyer in 3yo debut; Runner-up to Triple Crown winner Justify (USA) in Santa Anita Derby (G1), earning a 102 Beyer.

US$630,000 Saratoga Select yearling out of the multiple stakes-producing A.P. Indy mare Globe Trot, from a speedy family that includes 12 black type horses from 1200-1600m in his first 3 dams.

Earned US$1,016,000 — US$576,000 as a 2yo. No son of Medaglia d’Oro (USA) possesses his combination of pedigree, physique, speed, class and precociousness.
