2013 Triple Crown Contenders

Merit Man

Trainer:   Robert Hess Jr.
Jockey:   Kent Desormeaux
Owner:   Chandler, Bruce, McKee, Robert H. and Glavin, James
Foaling Date:   3-14-2010
Pedigree:   With Distinction - Precise Strike by Precise End
Dosage Profile:   3-1-8-0-0
Dosage Index / CD:   2.00   0.58  
2012 Record:   3 Starts: 2 - 1 - 0, $192,000

Note:   Merit Man broke his maiden in his 1st try last year at Del Mar, then shipped to Santa Anita to win the Tim Conway and finish 2nd in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Sprint. He made his 2013 debut at Gulfstream Park to win the Spectacular Bid Stakes, then was 4th in the Hutcheson, and 3rd in the Florida Derby. Another confirmed front-runner who may not like longer distances. He will probably skip the Kentucky Derby and go to the Peter Pan on May 11, the Preakness on May 18, or the Woody Stephens on Belmont Stakes day.
