From the owner/trainer combination that saddled I’ll Have Another to victory in this year’s Kentucky Derby and Preakness, this son of Scat Daddy hasn’t raced since a fourth-place finish in the Grade 3 Spiral at Turfway in March.  He’s only run on conventional dirt once in seven starts and that was a fourth-place finish in the Grade 3 Sham this spring at Santa Anita.  He has proven connections and has been working strongly out west, but will face the toughest field of his career in the Haskell.
