The Todd Pletcher-trained colt started off his career a perfect 4 for 4 but has not finished better than third in his last three races. This son of Tapit has struggled breaking cleanly from the gate and is routinely at the back of the field, which could be particularly problematic at Saratoga as only 20% of dirt route winners have come from more than 3 ½ lengths off the pace during the meet. He is also not a nimble horse and appears to need a lot of time to let his stride reach top speed. Many people pegged him as a Belmont horse due to his pedigree and running style, and while his third-place effort was respectable he was still a step behind two of his fellow Travers entrants (Arcangelo and Forte). There is clearly talent, but it is difficult to support him until he proves he can put it all together against this level of competition.
