​When Nimitz Class captured the Native Dancer Stakes at Laurel Park on April 29, he was winning his fourth Stakes race in his last five starts. He bested the fields in the Robert T. Manfuso Stakes on December 30, 2022, the John B. Campbell on February 18 and the Harrison E. Johnson Memorial on March 18. All of these races were held at Laurel Park. Nimitz Class has since won an Allowance race at PARX on May 22.

A graduate of Randy and Kala Rentz’s training center in Erhardt, SC, Nimitz Class dueled early on between foes in the Native Dancer before opening up a large lead. His mind may have wandered some during the stretch run as his lead started to shrink but he held on to win by 2 ¾ lengths.

Nimitz Class is a four-year-old son of Munnings out of Five Diamonds by Flatter. He was bred and is owned by Tom Coulter. The trainer is Bruce Kravets. In 16 lifetime starts, Nimitz Class has recorded 10 wins and $464,880 in earnings. Nimitz Class was named Pennsylvania-bred 3-Year-Old Male of the Year.
