Notes:   Exaggerator never ran a step in his first start in June at Santa Anita, but broke his maiden in his second start in July at Del Mar. He shipped across country to Saratoga next and won the Saratoga Special (G2) then shipped to Keeneland to finish second in the Breeders Futurity (G1) then fourth in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1). He finished the season winning the Delta Downs Jackpot (G3). He made his 2016 debut in the San Vicente Stakes (G2) where he finished second behind Exaggerator, then he finished third in the San Felipe (G2) on March 12. He was an impressive winner of the Santa Anita Derby (G1) for his final prep. He finished a fast closing second in the Kentucky Derby (G1) and then drew off to win the Preakness over the slop. He never ran a lick in the Belmont Stakes and finished 11th.

After a bit of rest, Exaggerator came back in the Haskell Invitational, winning over American Freedom. He went next to the Travers where he trailed early and failed to rally, finishing 11th behind Arrogate. He followed that up with another sub-par performance, finishing 7th in the Pennsylvania Derby. He has now been retired and will stand at stud at WinStar Farm next year.
