Intense Holiday is a Harlan's Holiday and Intensify colt who won the G2 Risen Star and finished second in the G1 Louisiana Derby. His latest workouts have looked solid and really impressed trainer Todd Pletcher.

"Everything we were hoping to see," Pletcher said. "...I thought that was exceptionally good this morning."

Pletcher has a few solid contenders running in the derby this year, but Intense Holiday is amongst his best. This horse will definitely find his way into some of our exotics this Saturday.
