W-o-w! Shipping to Tampa, dealing with the rain, a far outside post, and facing stakes company for the first time did little to phase Litigate! The exciting sophomore pulled clear to a powerful victory in the G3 Sam F. Davis. His victory earned him 20 points on the Kentucky Derby leaderboard. We’re incredibly grateful to everyone involved, starting with our outstanding partners. Dr. Stephen Carr and Paula Parsons selected him at the Keeneland September Sale, Parsons and her team developed him in Middleburg before he joined trainer Todd Pletcher‘s barn, and he was given a terrific ride by jockey Luis Saez. Litigate is a remarkably exciting colt and we couldn’t be more proud of him!
