Uncle Sigh lost a pair of photo finishes to Samraat in the Withers and Gotham before finishing fifth in the Wood Memorial. However, that race may be better than it looks on paper, as the colt missed the break and suffered from a wide trip. Irad Ortiz, Jr., will get his first Derby mount aboard Uncle Sigh, and he and his brother Jose (on Samraat) are the first group of brothers to contest the same Derby since the Maples (Eddie and Sam) in 1984.
