Hansen - 2012 Gotham (G3)
Rebounding from his only defeat, juvenile champion Hansen came from off the pace for the first time in his career and posted a decisive three-length victory in Saturday's 60th running of the Grade 3, $400000 Gotham at Aqueduct Racetrack to reaffirm his status as one of the early favorites for the Kentucky Derby. Leaving from post position 12, the near-white son of Tapit was hung out four wide going round the first turn as King and Crusader emerged to tow the field of 13 through an opening quarter-mile in 23.68 seconds. Settling comfortably off the pacesetter on the backside as the half went in 47.51 and three-quarters in 1:11.79, Hansen moved up three-wide to challenge for the lead on the turn, easily taking over once into the stretch and drawing clear for the decision over My Adonis.
