Chimney Rock, a maiden winner over the Saratoga turf Sept. 1, was a narrowly beaten second just a week later in the Sept. 7 Kentucky Downs Juvenile Turf Sprint S. and again in the Oct. 6 Indian Summer S. at Keeneland. He was beaten three-quarters of a length when second behind Four Wheel Drive (American Pharoah) in the Nov. 1 GII Breeders= Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint last time out. Making his first attempt on dirt since a third-place finish on debut in the Belmont slop in late June, the bay colt raced off the pace while three wide down the backstretch. He moved up four wide to challenge for the lead at the top of the stretch and powered clear to a much-the-best victory.
