The 4-year-old finished sixth in his most recent race prior to Saturday, the Elkhorn Stakes (gr. IIIT) won by Kim Loves Bucky. The win improved his career mark to five wins from 13 starts. Donnie Meche was in the irons. "This isn't the first time that I've been moved up to win a stakes, but it is the first time to be moved up and be in a dead-heat also," said Meche. (Chart, Equibase)
