Yankee Bravo has been a horse for all seasons, or at least all track surfaces. He started his career in England on turf (a win) and made his last run at the Santa Anita Derby (finishing fourth) on synthetic surface. In between, he had his lone race on a regular dirt track -- which, of course, he'll race on for the Preakness -- at the Louisiana Derby on March 8 finishing third. For his career, he has three wins (his first three races) in five starts.
Yankee Bravo has a good post position for Saturday, No. 4, and he'll be ridden by Alex Solis. Here's Yankee Bravo (No. 8) at the Louisiana Derby coming from the back of the pack to show.
