He did not race again until February 2016 when he prepped at Meydan with a 5th in the Firebreak Stakes and a 4th in the Al Maktoum Challenge before finishing 2nd in the Dubai World Cup. He was off from March to July when he came back to the US and finished 3rd in the Suburban Handicap at Belmont Park then 2nd in the Woodward Stakes at Saratoga. He finished 4th in the Jockey Club Gold Cup (G1) at Belmont Park for his final start last year.

He made his 2017 debut finishing 2nd in the Curlin Handicap at Meydan then 4th in the Dubai World Cup (G1). He was off for 6 months, then he won the Awesome Again Stakes (G1) at Santa Anita to guarantee a spot in the Classic field.
