Titletown Five (inside) finishes second in a maiden race to Violence at Saratoga.

Titletown Five, who Wednesday was announced as an individual betting interest in Pool 2 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager, will make his seasonal debut Saturday at Oaklawn in the $60,000 Gazebo. The field for the six-furlong race for 3-year-olds includes the undefeated Get Happy Mister, a nine-length winner of the $100,000 Gold Rush Futurity at Arapahoe in his last start Aug. 19.

Titletown Five, co-owned and trained by D. Wayne Lukas, was a nine-length maiden special weight winner at Churchill in his last start Oct. 28. For the effort, he earned a Beyer of 98. Lukas is excited about the son of Tiznow whose markings include a star on his forehead.

“It’s in the shape of an ‘S’ for superstar,” he grinned.

Jon Court has the mount from post 6 in the field of 7.
