Cape Blanco drew the number 7 post on Tuesday.  He is the 2010 Irish Derby hero.

Gio Ponti finished second to the Irish-bred Cape Blancoin the Man o' War Grade I

The six-year-old Gio Ponti won the Million in 2009 and was runner-up last year.

It's tough to pass on the Million," Trainer Christoph Clement said, "we won and finished second the last two years."

Gio Ponti’s accomplishments cannot be underestimated.  He has earned nearly $5.5 million in 26 career starts with 11 wins and, in 2009, he finished second to Zenyatta in the Breeders' Cup Classic.
