Race 13


Yes No. 1 War of Will had a horrible time of it in the Kentucky Derby and maybe could have just stayed on the rail and none of this would have ever happened but the past is the past and we will move on. He looks to be a big player in this race along with Bob Baffert’s runner No. 4 Improbable who now gets Mike Smith riding, his only drawback is that he will be overbet after taking all the late action in the Kentucky Derby. Looking for a few prices to put with the top two are No. 11 Laughing Fox who ran right behind Omaha Beach, Improbable and Country House in the Arkansas Derby and then won his next start in the $300k Oaklawn Park Invitational. No. 7 Alwaysmining will be part of the pace for a long time. He is on a six race winning streak for a good trainer Kelly Rubley who started her career working for Ken McPeek who sends out No. 8 Signalman who looks to be sitting on a big effort in this his 3rd start off the year. We remember he ran 3rd in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile last year.

Race 5
