PARENTING (Justify) debuts for Gandharvi LLC., who purchased the colt at last year's OBS April Two-Year-Olds In Training Sale for $750,000. The Bob Baffert trainee's dam is a half-sister to Canadian champion turf male El Tormenta (Stormy Atlantic) and GSW Zero Tolerence (Mizzen Mast).

The other half of the Baffert uncoupled entry is first time starter Middleburg (Tapit). A $485,000 buy for SF Bloodstock, Starlight and Madaket at the 2022 Keeneland September Sale, the gray is out of MGSW Selcourt (Tiz Wonderful), who was herself purchased by Breeze Easy for $800,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Fall Mixed Sale.

Finally, Fausto (Mastery) heads to the post for his unveiling under the care of John Shirreffs. The bay's unraced dam counts as half-brothers GI Kentucky Derby longshot champ Giacomo (Holy Bull) and GI Santa Anita Derby hero Tiago (Pleasant Tap). TJCIS PPS
