From Forbes.com: "This is a horse that more people should know about. His trainer was an assistant to Todd Pletcher, who ruled the sport before Chad Brown came along; an accomplished rider, Thomas suffered a catastrophic injury before turning to training, leaving Pletcher’s employ to strike out on his own. Catholic Boy began his career on grass, was switched to dirt and won the Grade 2 Remsen, then bled in the Grade 1 Florida Derby, sidelining him on the Kentucky Derby trail. Switched back to grass, he won the Grade 1 Belmont Derby, then cruised to victory in the Grade 1 Travers Stakes back on dirt. Versatile and talented, a win here would cap an incredible year that might have some voters putting him on their ballot for champion 3-year-old."

Trainer Jonathan Thomas was pleased with Catholic Boy's morning of training at Churchill Downs Wednesday.

“He showed that contained energy like he's just a stride away from exploding, like a keg of dynamite just waiting to go off,” Thomas said. “Our job is to hopefully time it for 5:45 Saturday afternoon.”
