A son of 2000 Derby winner Fusaichi Pegasus, he swept the trio of Derby prep races at the Fair Grounds in New Orleans, including the Louisiana Derby. His 171 points topped the Derby leaderboard that decides the 20-horse field, but he figures to be a longer shot despite being one of four millionaires in the race. He has five wins in nine career races. He is trained by Mike Maker, who is 0 for 7 in the Derby. Miguel Mena will be riding in his first Derby. Owners Ken and Sarah Ramsey are among the best in the sport and are native Kentuckians.
