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.
