Note:   Gronkowski broke his maiden in his 3rd start as a 2-year-old at Chelmsford City. He made his 2018 debut winning an allowance at Newcastle, then won the Road to the Kentucky Derby Condition Stakes at Kempton Park, finally winning the 32red Burradon Stakes at Newcastle to get the top points in the European Road To The Kentucky Derby and a guaranteed spot in the field. Although he has only raced in England, he does have 4 wins over all-weather surfaces there. He missed the Derby and Preakness due to an infection, then switched from Jeremy Noseda to Chad Brown for the Belmont. In the Belmont Stakes (G1) he sat 10th and last early then rallied to finish 2nd beaten 1 3/4 lengths at odds of 24-1.
