We did it! Air Support (Smart Strike x Gaze, by Danzig) and jockey Alex Solis are greeted following their enthralling victory in the Virginia Derby, where they grabbed the lead in the final furlong while holding off a late charge by the favorite Banned. I can recognize those silks anywhere, too— Air Support is owned by Stuart Janney III, whose father owned and bred the great Ruffian. Look out Saratoga!
