Roy H

It’s difficult to find a sprinter in America more consistent at the top level in 2017 than Roy H, yet he still manages to fly a bit under the TwinSpires Breeders’ Cup Sprint radar for owners Rockingham Ranch and David Bernsen. A good-looking son of More Than Ready and multi-surface, multiple graded stakes-winning filly Elusive Diva, the 5-year-old gelding was always expected to do well — he just took a while to come around for trainer Peter Miller.

Initially raced on the grass because his pedigree leans slightly towards that surface, he broke his maiden on the turf, but never quite showed the prowess in the afternoons as he did training on the dirt in the mornings. Time and a change of surface did the trick, as he entered his 5-year-old season in 2017 a first-level turf allowance winner and now is Grade 1 winner on the dirt after taking the Santa Anita Sprint Championship Oct. 7 under Hall of Famer Kent Desormeaux. He was also a game second to Ransom the Moon in the Bing Crosby over the Del Mar course and one race earlier had shipped east to take the True North at Belmont Park, defeating Stallwalkin’ Dude and Whitmore.

While it is easy to see why he is overshadowed this season with such standouts as Drefong and Mind Your Biscuits, a victory at Del Mar in the Sprint over those rivals, among others, will no doubt go a long way in year-end championship voting. Overall, Roy H has a record of 16-5-4-1 and $534,765 — $445,900 of that earned in his quintet of 2017 efforts.
