Note:   Vekoma broke his maiden in his first start last year at Belmont in September then won the Nashua Stakes (G3) at Aqueduct. He made his 2019 debut finishing third in the Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2) at Gulfstream Park, then shipped up to Keeneland to win the Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (G2) for his final prep. In the Kentucky Derby (G1) he finished 13th (moved up to 12th) beaten 14 3/4 lengths at odds of 17-1. Based on his birthdate, he will not turn 3 until after the Preakness!
