The Dale Romans-trained horse has finished in the money in five of six career starts.

Paddy O'Prado (11-1), who will start from the No. 10 post position, is coming off second-place finish in April 10's Bluegrass Stakes at Keeneland. Jockey Kent Desormeaux rode him that day for the first time.

The horse has posted a win, place and show in his three starts this year, but has never run on wet dirt.

Paddy O'Prado, who is owned by Donegal Racing, has $264,497 career earnings.
