Govenor Charlie ran on a lightning fast track. Check out the times and track records for the card that day.
Gee, Storm only ran 4th to the slowest 1 1/8th since 1968= 1:51.98 or almost 2 full mins. w/Black Onyx holding him off. Truth is All the Preps but Govenor Charlie's were way, way, way behind the 2012/2011/2010/2009 Fields running f/the Roses= 2013's Slowest bunch I've seen in awhile.
It seems the only one out of this lot who's got a shot at making the KD is Taken by the Storm, and he'll probably win the Lexington.
