Bobby's Wicked One started 2020 like he ended 2019, with a stakes win at Fair Grounds. His 2020 debut came in Saturday's $100,000 Duncan F. Kenner S., and the now 5-year-old cruised to a front-running, 4 1/4-length victory.
Winner of the Commonwealth S. (G3) at Keeneland last spring and the Thanksgiving Classic in November, Bobby's Wicked One is 5-4-1 in 14 lifetime starts and has earned $484,257 for Autumn Hill Farms Racing Stables, Inc.

The winner was bred in Kentucky by Ramona Bass and was part of a huge day for Speightstown that saw his 4-year-old filly Victim of Love get her second career stakes win in Laurel Park's What A Summer S. and the 3-year-old colt Echo Town named a TDN Rising Star with a sharp debut maiden special weight win at Fair Grounds.
