Hansen, and his blue tail, will face a field of nine rivals, including:

  • Hero of Order, winner of the G2-Louisiana Derby at odds of 109/1, and second to Hansen in the G2-Iowa Derby last time out.
  • Macho Macho: Third in the G3-Matt Winn behind Neck 'n Neck and Stealcase.
  • La Bernardin: A nice looking Darley colt by Bernardini that won the G3-Pegasus at Monmouth on June 17th.
