Colt Pioneerof The Nile Saint Bernadette
Talented but lightly raced, Social Inclusion has been pointed to the Preakness since his scintillating debut victory on Feb. 22 at Gulfstream Park.
Overlooked at 9-1 in the field of eight maidens, Social Inclusion broke first from the rail and stayed in front for a 7 ½-length victory in 1:09.35 for six furlongs.
In his next start on March 12, Social Inclusion faced highly regarded Grade 2 winner Honor Code and delivered an eye-opening performance, rolling to a 10-length victory in a track-record 1:40.97 for 1 1/16 miles at Gulfstream.
Vanned to New York to make his stakes debut in the Grade 1 Wood Memorial, Social Inclusion took a 1 ½-length lead into the stretch before grudgingly giving way and finishing third behind Wicked Strong and Samraat, beaten less than four lengths.
Social Inclusion returned to his South Florida base following the Wood to prepare for the Preakness with a steady string of three-furlong works. He is a son of 2009 Kentucky Derby runner-up Pioneerof the Nile, who ran 11th of 13 in the 134th Preakness.
