It took six tries for Perform to win his first race, but he followed it up with a victory April 15 in the Federico Tesio at Laurel. Just a sixteenth of a mile it looked like Perform had no shot to win, but under an incredible zig-zagging ride by Lynch he gamely got up by a head at the finish. McGaughey finished second in the 1989 Preakness with Easy Goer and fourth with Kentucky Derby winner Orb in 2013.
