Notes: Pretension emerged from a blanket finish to win the Canonero, formerly known as the Federico Tesio, by a neck over Brimstone Island in 1:45 3/5 for 1 1/16 miles. It was another neck back to My Adonis, who was entered but scratched from the Kentucky Derby. Having raced on or near the lead in each of those outings, Pretension found himself much farther back in both the Grade 3 Gotham and Grade 3 Illinois Derby, losing round late and finishing fifth and ninth, respective ly. The chestnut son of 2006 Kentucky Derby runner-up Bluegrass Cat returned to his winning ways at Pimlico in the $51,000 Canonero II on May 5.
