Express Train Contender Profile

Trainer John Shirreffs saddled Giacomo to a 50-1 upset in the 2005 Kentucky Derby, and he could return to Churchill Downs with Express Train. A 14 ¼-length maiden winner at Del Mar, Express Train unleashed a big move on the far turn of the American Pharoah Stakes (G1) at Santa Anita, but ultimately flattened out to finish fourth over the slow and tiring track. The good news? He was only beaten a neck by future Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) winner Storm the Court. It’s unlikely we’ve seen the best from this son of 2012 Belmont Stakes (G1) winner Union Rags.
