First Samurai, who has won two Grade Is, is a "very precious 2-year-old," Brothers said. "Anytime a 2-year-old wins a Grade I, that's impressive. That's hard to do."
Brothers almost had a chance at the Juvenile in 1990 with Hansel, who went on to win the 1991 Preakness, but a small chip behind his ankle after the Arlington-Washington Futurity nixed that opportunity. His last series entry was Arch in the 1998 Classic.
