2009 Triple Crown Contenders

Luv Gov

Trainer:   D. Wayne Lukas
Jockey:   Miguel Mena
Foaling Date:   2-12-2006
Pedigree:   Ten Most Wanted - City of Silver by Nepal
Dosage Profile:   7-2-5-0-0
Dosage Index/CD:   4.60   1.14
2008 Record:   6 Starts: 0 - 0 - 1, $9,671
Best Beyer Figure:   87
Note:   Winless in 6 starts last year, his best placing was a 3rd place at Keeneland in a maiden race. In 2009, he had three straight second place finishes in maiden races at Oaklawn and Keeneland, and finally broke his maiden on Kentucky Derby day at Churchill Downs. Never a factor in the Preakness, he passed fading rivals to finish 8th. In the Belmont, he was unhurried for the first mile, came out four wide for the drive and during a mild late rally, passed tiring horses to finish fifth beaten 10 1/4 lengths.
