Quote from The Thoroughbred Times: "A juvenile campaign is virtually a prerequisite for winning the Kentucky Derby. Only ONE colt, Apollo, has won the Derby without racing as a two year old, and he accomplished that feat in 1882, in the eigth running.
In recent years, ONLY THREE have won after making only one start as a two year old. Tim Tam won in 1958 after finishing unplaced in his only start at two. Also unplaced at two was Lucky Debonair, who won he 1965 Derby. Fusiaichi Pegasus finished second in his only start at two and won the 2000 edition as the 2.3/1 favorite."

History says it is a risky wager no matter how much this one fits the pattern.
