Vyjack won his career debut in early November at Aqueduct by 1 3/4 lengths before tackling stakes company in December. The move proved to be successful when the then 2-year-old gelding won the Traskwood Stakes. His 2013 debut was in the Jerome Stakes (G2), where he beat Siete de Oros by a head. He stepped onto the Derby trail with a win in the Gotham Stakes (G3) over West Hills Giant but ended his undefeated streak when third in the Wood Memorial (G1).
Vyjack earned a spot in the Kentucky Derby, where he finished 18th. He then continued on the Triple Crown trail with a trip to the 2013 Belmont Stakes, where he finished eighth.
