Doug O'Neill began training in 1994 and has been a perennial leader on the southern California racing circuit. He is most widely recognized for his campaigning of 2012 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner I'll Have Another and the popular gelding Lava Man who he claimed for $50,000 and would go on to win over $5 million including grade 1 races on three different surfaces while capturing the hearts and interest of fans around the world.
Mario Gutierrez has been the leading rider at Hastings Racecourse in Vancouver Canada prior to moving his tack to Southern California for the winter. Troy Taylor, a top trainer at Hastings who Mario has been the primary jockey for, is racing a stable at Santa Anita currently and this precipitated the move for Gutierrez. His wins in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes aboard I'll Have Another are his biggest victories to date.
Paul Reddam is the President of CashCall a financial lending company. He founded Ditech.com, a mortgage loan company in 1995 and sold it to GM in 1999.

Dark bay’s two previous starts on grass include a maiden win and a decent second place finish in the Generous Stakes over a mile at Hollywood Park last November. Son of very promising turf sire Scat Daddy has a solid grass pedigee being out of a mare by Smart Strike and his second dam by Red Ransom and is from the barn of Doug O’Neill who wins with 14% of his starters on the surface. Three-year-old was last seen when a well beaten fourth in the Haskell Invitational at Monmouth in July when making his first start since closing for fourth in the Spiral Stakes at Turfway in March and barn wins with 26% second time off a layoff. Colt has tactical speed and should be forwardly placed under Kentucky Derby winning rider Mario Gutierrez but may be a notch below the best in here.
