In the Breeders' Cup Classic, held at Santa Anita, Tiago made a big move from nearly last, rallying on the inside to nab third from Curlin to be the top American finisher in the $5-million event, beaten 2 1/2 lengths by victorious Raven's Pass. Prior to the Breeders' Cup, Tiago finished second with another big late charge in the Sept. 27 Goodwood (G1), one length behind Well Armed. Using similar closing tactics he found the winners circle in the Santa Anita Derby (G1) as a three year old, which firmly placed him on the Kentucky Derby (G1) trail. Although never engaging in the Derby he made a very nice run in the Belmont (G1) finishing third. He closed out a great three year old campaign with a victory against older horses in the Goodwood (G1); to cement himself as one of the top three year olds of his generation.
