He made his 2016 debut finishing a disappointing seventh as the favorite in the Tampa Bay Derby on March 11. He shipped to Keeneland for his final prep, winning the Blue Grass Stakes (G1). He finished 7th in the Kentucky Derby (G1) from post 19. He skipped the Preakness to wait for the Belmont Stakes. He made a mild move in the Belmont Stakes finishing sixth.
