RACE RECORD: Lightly raced with six career starts, Peighnt Your Fate has been carefully placed by his connections, and it paid off with a trip to the Los Alamitos Two Million Futurity (G1) last year.

He unleashed his first derby-year effort in a Ruidoso allowance, then was third in his All American Derby trial behind Dashnunder Afullmoon and Hes Limitless.

BREEDER/OWNER: One of three homebreds in the race, Peighnt Your Fate represents the McKinney family’s operation, which is based at their Lazy E Ranch.

They have raced the earners of more than $5.8 million, including 2013 All American Derby winner Feature Hero, as well as Grade 1 winners Rock You and Big Lew.

The McKinneys have bred the earners of more than $1.5 million, including stakes winners The Charm Of Corona, SC Vapor Trail and American Hustler.

TRAINER: Mike Robbins saddled legends First Down Dash, Dashs Dream, Sgt Pepper Feature and Special Leader, but then took a long break from training. He returned in 2012 to train select horses, and has sent out Grade 1 winner Big Lew among others. Robbins has trained the earners of more than $8.5 million.

He won the All American Derby in 1984 with Dashs Dream.

QUALIFYING JOCKEY: Stormy Smith has in the past 18 years ridden the earners of more than $16.5 million, including 959 winners.

Among the Grade 1 winners he has taken to the winner’s circle are Givinitaroyaleffort, First Prize Robin, AJs High, Chances Are I Wil and Cascia Babe.

PEDIGREE: Sire PYC Paint Your Wagon had a knockout day, with four qualifiers to the All American Derby including Papaws Paint, Peighnt Your Fate, PYC Fun N Fancy and Wagon Chick V.

Himself a three-time Grade 1 winner and earner of $889,581, PYC Paint Your Wagon has already sired the earners of more than $31.3 million, putting him at No. 7 on the all-time sire earnings list.

The 15-year-old son of Corona Cartel is owned by a partnership and stands at Lazy E Ranch at Guthrie, Oklahoma.

The Double Bar S Ranch-bred Fate Cant Weight was a stakes-placed runner during her career, and early in her broodmare career has produced one winner from two starters.

Her dam, Wortherweightingold, is a daughter of Double Bar S’s good mare Gold Daze, who also produced champion Jess You And I ($1,851,691).

Fate Cant Weight has three yearlings, including one by Corona Cartel named Giving Freely, and two by Coronado Cartel  named Find My Place and Oil Company Bum.
