Race Preview

Bob Baffert’s Improbable, elevated to fourth at the Derby should be the post-time favorite. Piloted by Mike Smith, Improbable will be looking to give Baffert a record 8th victory in the run for the Black Eyed Susans. Another horse that figures to take lots of the public’s money is Mark Casse’s War of Will. The horse most bothered by Maximum Security in the Derby, War of Will emerged relatively unscathed and will look to improve upon his 7th place showing at Churchill Downs. Another Derby finisher Win Win Win who is based in the Mid-Atlantic for trainer Mike Trombetta will try to improve on his ninth-place Derby performance. A horse sure to generate a ton of buzz is Kelly Rubley’s Alwaysmining. The going-away winner of the Federico Tesio Stakes, the local tune-up for the Preakness, Alwaysmining enters chock full of confidence and run. Alwaysmining comes in on a six-race win streak (all wins at nearby Laurel Park) and owns victories over Win Win Win and Joevia, a recent impressive winner of the Long Branch at Monmouth Park. A horse that was squarely on the precipice of entry into the Derby, Anothatwistafate invades from Northern California after falling just short of Derby points. Jose Ortiz will be the horse’s third rider in as many races and he figures to factor heavily into the pace scenario. Although not a need to lead type per se, Blaine Wright’s son of Scat Daddy has shown a propensity to be involved early. Once looked at as a serious Derby contender, Mark Hennig’s colt Bourbon War finished fourth in the Florida Derby after a second-place showing in the Fountain of Youth. The connections opted to sit out the Derby and come back strong for the Preakness.
