Havana made his debut at Saratoga, breaking his maiden by 2 3/4 lengths. In his very next start he won the Grade 1 Foxwoods Champagne Stakes at Belmont, a Breeders' Cup "Win and Your In" race qualifying him for the Juvenile, where he placed second. Due to his successful season, Havana was named a finalist for 2-year-old champion male.
After a delayed start to his 3-year-old season, Havana ran second in the Gold Fever Stakes.
