California Derby champion Zeewat will face eight rivals, including a pair of colts trained by three-time Kentucky Derby winner Bob Baffert, in the $200,000 El Camino Real Derby (gr. III) at Golden Gate Fields Feb. 16.
Odds-on Zeewat overcame a less than ideal trip to claim the $100,000 California Derby Jan. 12 at Golden Gate Fields for his second straight stakes score around two turns.
Zeewat, a front-running 3 1/4-length victor in the Gold Rush Stakes for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer one month ago, is the one to beat in the $100,000 California Derby Jan. 12 Golden Gate Fields.
