Note:   Lani had never raced in North America so the Kentucky Derby was his first start here. He broke his maiden in his third start last year in Japan and followed that up winning the Cattleya Sho in Tokyo in late November. He made his 2016 Debut finishing fifth in the Hyacinth Stakes in Tokyo on February 2, then shipped to Dubai to prep for and win the UAE Derby (G2) to guarantee a spot in the Kentucky Derby field. He was 17th early and finish 9th in the Kentucky Derby (G1) and fifth in the Preakness. He rallied from far back in the Belmont Stakes and finished third.
