No doubt that he will be the only pace-setter, but Hansen truly does belong in races from a mile to a 1 /16 miles. He showed that in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and the Gotham Stakes. It’s Shackleford all over again.
Shackleford won the Preakness! It’s just a touch short of 10 furlongs, but still…that’s a pretty good longer distance win.
