Note:   He seemed unstoppable in 2006 with 7 wins from 7 starts including the Santa Anita Handicap, Hollywood Gold Cup, Pacific Classic, and the Goodwood Breeders' Cup. Shipped to Churchill Downs for the Breeders' Cup, but finished 7th. In 2007, he won his first two starts, then was 16 in the Dubai World Cup and only won one more race in 5 further starts that year. In 2008, he only races 3 times with two 3rds and a 6th place finish. X-rays on his ankles did not look good, so he was retired on July 30, 2008 after 46 career starts. Was off for more than a year, when he came out of retirement but finished 7th is his comeback attempt and was retired again on January 5, 2010. In May 2010, trainer Doug O'Neill said he would act as his stable pony. In May 2012, he lead I'll Have Another to the post for the Kentucky Derby, which he won.
