Note: In 2017, Flameaway broke his maiden in his first start at Woodbine then shipped to Saratoga to win the Skidmore Stakes. Next he went to Churchill Downs to finish 6th in the Iroquois Stakes (G3), then Keeneland to win the Bourbon Stakes (G3), and closed out the year with a dismal 8th place finish in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf (G1). He made his 2018 debut winning the Kitten's Joy Stakes at Gulfstream Park then over to Tampa Bay Downs to win the Sam F. Davis Stakes (G3) and finish 2nd the Tampa Bay Derby. He is not yet nominated to the Triple Crown, but he can be in the late nominations that close in late March.

Security even tighter - if you are going to the Derby or Oaks be sure to check here to find out what you can bring in with you. The enhanced security means no big cameras, camcorders, big purses, or coolers. Check here to make sure you don't bring anything they will confiscate. Also there will be no re-entry if you leave the track, so don't forget anything! 2018 is likely to be the same if not more restricted.
