He didn’t start again until January when he won the Count Fleet Stakes at Aqueduct by 5 lengths. Shipped to Arkansas, he captured three straight stakes at Oaklawn Park, the Southwest by 3/4, the Rebel by 3 1/4, and the Gr. II Arkansas Derby by 1 1/2. He headed to the Kentucky Derby unbeaten in six races, which were won by a combined total of 33 1/4 lengths. He then added the Derby by 2 3/4 lengths and the Preakness by 11 1/2, finally losing his Triple Crown bid in the Belmont Stakes by one length to Birdstone. He retired with earnings of $7,613,155.
