Pickswise's Expert Predictions & Analysis
Costing $275,000 as a yearling, this son of Constitution made a very promising debut at Keeneland last October. Plenty went wrong for him that day, hopping at the start and just as he was making ground in the stretch, he was badly bumped and had to switch. That effort can be upgraded and after a winter to mature, he should be a different proposition here. With natural improvement, he should be graduating at the second attempt with Lasix applied.
Chad Brown’s charge won the Grade 1 Shoemaker Mile at Santa Anita last May and was in great form to end 2020, including a close second in the Shadwell Turf Mile at Keeneland. He was making his first start off the layoff when easily landing the Grade 1 Maker’s Mark Mile back at Keeneland and he can be expected to step forward plenty from that effort. He sets a daunting form standard and drawn in the box seat, he’s going to be very tough to beat.
