Race Recap/Replay

Trained by Bob Baffert, McKinzie’s Whitney win, his second of the year following the Alysheba Stakes (G2), was his fourth at the Grade 1 level and improved his career record to 12-7-4-0. The 4-year-old son of Street Sense, whose lone off-the-board finish was a disappointing 12th in last fall’s Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1), has now earned $2,238,560 for co-owners Karl Watson, Mike Pegram, and Paul Weitman. It was the first Whitney Stakes win for Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert.
