TDN Top Triple Crown Contenders

Summer Is Tomorrow

19) SUMMER IS TOMORROW (c, Summer Front–Always Tomorrow, by Badge of Silver) O-Michael Hilary & Negar Burke. B-Brereton C. Jones (KY). T-Bhupat Seemar. Sales History: $25,000 wlg '19 KEENOV; $14,000 RNA '20 KEESEP; £120,000 2yo '21 ARQMAY. Lifetime Record: GSP-UAE, 7-2-3-0, $267,606. Last Start: 2nd G2 UAE Derby. KY Derby Points: 40. Post 4, 30-1.

With a six-sprint foundation at Meydan and Jebel Ali and a Derby gate draw of post four, there should be no doubt that the strategy for this late Triple Crown supplement and three-time auction entrant ($25,000 KEENOV; $14,000 RNA at KEESEP; $169,743 ARQDEA) will be to send and try to stave off the competition for as long as he's able. Over 1 3/16 miles in the UAE Derby, this son of Summer Front sought the lead and held well until the deep stages. A reality check looms Saturday against a far superior field that will include multiple waves of pace-pressers and closers.
