The Check Him Out gelding was a bit fractious and was off half a step slow at the break. He then rocketed away and was a half length the best at the wire, covering the 400 yards in :19.580. Trained by James Glenn Jr., he was ridden by Eulices Gomez. The race was his second Grade 1 win in the year; in August, he won the Golden State Derby (G1). In nine starts during his season, he was never worse than third. He started his year by finishing second to Kobe in the Holiday Handicap. The next month, he was third, a neck back, to Kobe and Deniro in the Los Alamitos Winter Derby (G1). He then rested and returned to eclipse the Golden State by nearly a length. In the $948,000 Los Alamitos Super Derby (G1), he was again third to Deniro and Hez Our Secret. In his career, he has won six of 14 starts, with three seconds and five thirds. He has earned $358,206. Finishing a game second was Shez Jess Toxic, who battled to the finish. The filly is bred, owned and trained by Dean Frey and was ridden by Joel Cruz. She is by Take Off Jess and out of the Victory Dash mare Dashing Fly Lady. From 11 career starts, she has won four, been second five times and third once while earning $139,960.
