General A Rod
Sire: Roman Ruler
Dam: Dynamite Eyes (by Dynaformer)
Owner: J. Armando Rodriguez
Trainer: Mike Maker
Never worse than third in five lifetime starts, General a Rod came into his own this past winter in Florida. He won the Gulfstream Park Derby before a heartbreaking loss in the Fountain of Youth and a solid third in the Florida Derby, and may benefit from the presence of jockey Joel Rosario, who won the 2013 Kentucky Derby aboard Orb.
