Notes: New York-bred Effinex has a career record of 25 starts, 9 wins, 2 seconds, and 4 thirds with earnings of $3,047,950 as of September 15, 2016. They tried him on the Triple Crown Trail in 2014 with little success, then switched over to NY-bred races where he did a bit better but not spectacularly. In 2015, he started off at Aqueduct with an allowance win then a win in the Excelsior Stakes, before a bad race in the Brooklyn Invitational where he did not finish. Whatever his problem was then must not have been serious, as he came right back with a win in the Suburban Handicap. He came into the Breeders' Cup Classic off a 4th in the Woodward and a 3rd in the Jockey Club Gold Cup to finish 2nd to American Pharoah. He closed out the year with a win in the Clark Handicap at Churchill Downs.

In 2016, he started the year with a 3rd in the Santa Anita Handicap then a win in the Oaklawn Handicap. Back at Churchill, he was 6th in the Stephen Foster Handicap, then at Belmont he won the Suburban Handicap again. Next he was 4th in the Whitney Stakes at Saratoga and then 2nd in the Jockey Club Gold Cup (G1) at Belmont Park.
