Point being: two year olds RARELY (Street Sense was an exception) signal their prowess to get 10 frulongs this early in their career when they are still learning to apportion their speed.

Preakness is not the Derby as ANYONE who has acess to the multiple sources (like the last twenty two years of American Racing Manuals here to my left) knows what went on.
Several Derby, Preakness, & Belmont winners have run in the Hollywood/CashCall Futurity over the years. The most recent being last year's winner Lookin at Lucky who went on to win the Preakness. The most recent to win the Derby was the 2005 winner, Giacomo.
what in almost 30 years it has produced just how many Derby winners? A few hit the board but a SINGLE winner? Hardly a good arena to discover 10 furlong talent in the Spring of their sophomore year, is it?
