Gouverneur Morris Contender Profile

Two-time Kentucky Derby-winning trainer Todd Pletcher has another major Run for the Roses contender in Gouverneur Morris, a well-bred son of Constitution out of an Unbridled’s Song mare. An impressive nine-length debut winner at Saratoga, Gouverneur Morris subsequently ran well with a wide trip in the Breeders’ Futurity (G1) at Keeneland, gamely finishing second behind runaway winner Maxfield.

 

Rather than send Gouverneur Morris across the country to contest the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1), Pletcher chose to rest the promising gray colt. Considering only three of the last 25 Kentucky Derby winners contested the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, history suggests Pletcher’s decision was a wise one.
