WE THE PEOPLE (c, 4, Constitution–Letchworth, by Tiznow) was last seen in Parx's crowning GI Pennsylvania Derby as MGISW Taiba (Gun Runner), GISW Zandon (Upstart), and MGISW Cyberknife (Gun Runner) went on to fill the trifecta. Before that, he'd made a name for himself on the back of a 10 1/4-length score in the GIII Peter Pan S., and then ran fourth in the GI Belmont S. next out as stablemates GISW Mo Donegal (Uncle Mo) and Champion 3-year-old filly, MGISW Nest (Curlin) rounded a big day for their–now shared–conditioner. Making said trainer change from Rodolphe Brisset to Todd Pletcher for this start, the betting public was not dissuaded by the lengthy layoff as they made the good looking colt the 3-5 favorite, and were not disappointed. Jumping fairly and setting the pace with ears pricked, the dark bay cruised through the first turn and shifted down to the two path as a pair of challengers pressed the point nearing the final bend. Inching away at the three furlong pole, he widened his margin of advantage to three lengths as Britain's Kitten (Big Blue Kitten) came on for second.

Out of a daughter of GISW Harmony Lodge (Hennessy), We the People is her most accomplished offspring thus far. He has a 3-year-old half-brother Absolutely Certain (Always Dreaming) as well as two other younger half-brothers–a 2-year-old by Audible and a yearling by More Than Ready. Letchworth is a half to MGSP Armistice day (Declaration of War) and GSW Stratford Hill (A.P. Indy). This is the female family of GISP Graeme Hall (Dehere) and GISW Pinehurst (Twirling Candy).
