Major stakes winners Dinard and Olympio didn't make it beyond the Strub Series. Reign Road later took down the Del Mar BC and Goodwood before a fast closing 4th to AP Indy in the BC Classic. Another Review went on a mid season tear and took the San Bernadino, Mervyn LeRoy, Californian, and San Diego. Twilight Agenda won the Oak Tree Mile, Sea Cadet had just won the Donn and GP Handicaps and later won the Meadowlands Cup. Defensive Play later won the Excelsior. Argentine HOY Algenib later won the Golden Gate Handicap, fellow Argentinian Ibero won the NYRA Mile and the following year won the Met Mile. Past their prime In Excess and Fly So Free were also defeated.
