Pre-race comments weren't enthusiastic.

Champion Shanghai Bobby to Miss Triple Crown

Shanghai Bobby is no longer being considered for the Kentucky Derby presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) or the Triple Crown races following his fifth-place finish in the Florida Derby (gr. I) March 30 at Gulfstream Park.

A Starlight Racing release said the 2012 champion juvenile male will be given time off and be pointed to a late summer or fall campaign. The release said that from a physical standpoint, Shanghai Bobby appears to have come out of the Florida Derby in good shape but trainer Todd Pletcher believes the energy level of the Harlan's Holiday colt is not where he'd like for it to be.
