Race 13: The Lecomte Stakes is an early prep race for the Kentucky Derby. Top choice is the Steve Asmussen trained No. 9 Silver State. This colt’s breeding is terrific. There’s stamina all over his pedigree, including a relation to 2001 Derby winner Monarchos. No. 10 Enforceable is attractive at this price. His last race in the slop displayed a sneaky good closing kick. No. 4 Scabbard is the likely favorite. Probably have to excuse the last race as it was the BC Juvenile. His efforts before that were quite good.
