He won the James W. Murphy Stakes a couple of races ago on Preakness Day and today he won the Grade 3 Virginia Derby. It was an odd race as the two closers, he and Critical Data found themselves in front! The slow fractions they set didn’t help Critical Data but it helped English Bee to stave off the closer in this race, to win. Congratulations to owners and breeders Calumet Farm. English Bee by the way is a cool dude; you wouldn’t know he was in the barn until he goes to the races!
