LOUISVILLE, KY (Monday, Aug. 31, 2020) – George Hall and SportBLX Thoroughbred’s Max Player completed his major preparations for Saturday’s $3 million Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve (GI) by working a half-mile in :49.80 over a fast track.

Late Monday morning, a total of nine fillies, headed by Gamine and Swiss Skydiver were entered for Friday’s 146th running of the $1.25 Longines Kentucky Oaks (GI).

Also announced Monday morning, Allied Racing Stables’ Mr. Big News will target Saturday’s Kentucky Derby instead of the $500,000 American Turf (GII).

ART COLLECTOR – They made not be visible beneath their masks, but Bruce Lunsford’s homebred Art Collector continues to inspire a round of smiles around Churchill Downs’ Barn 3.

The son Bernardini had another solid, routine morning in advance of the Kentucky Derby as he jogged a mile, then galloped 1 1/8 miles during the special training period reserved for Derby and Oaks horses at 7:30.

“Today was his first day back galloping since his breeze (five furlongs on Aug. 28) and I thought he looked fantastic,” trainer Tommy Drury said. “Everything seems to be in good order. From here on out, we’re back in a normal gallop routine and just try to stay out of his way for a few more days.”

Drury added he would likely do some paddock and gate schooling with Art Collector “Wednesday or Thursday.”

ATTACHMENT RATE – Jim Bakke and Gerald Isbister’s Attachment Rate walked trainer Dale Romans’ shedrow Monday morning.

The Ellis Park Derby runner-up is expected to go back to the track Tuesday.

AUTHENTIC – Grade 1 winner Authentic was slated to arrive in Louisville along with his Bob Baffert-trained stablemates around 3 p.m. (all times Eastern). The son of Into Mischief turned in his final major breeze in preparation for the Kentucky Derby on Sunday, covering six furlongs at Del Mar in 1:12.40.

ENFORCEABLE – John Oxley’s Enforceable galloped about a mile and a half under assistant trainer David Carroll on Monday, two days after breezing a half-mile in his final serious move in preparation for the Kentucky Derby.

“He’s in great shape, this is the best he’s trained,” Carroll said.

High expectations literally run in the family where Enforceable is concerned as he is a full brother to graded stakes winner Mohaymen -- the fourth-place finisher in the 2016 Kentucky Derby -- and a half sibling to New Year’s Day, sire of champion Maximum Security, who crossed the wire in front in the 2019 Kentucky Derby before being disqualified because of interference.

After finishing fifth in the Twinspires.com Louisiana Derby (GII) on March 21, however, Enforceable was a horse who needed all the extra time he could get if he were to make his own presence felt in the Run for the Roses.

“Oh if it (the Kentucky Derby) had been in May, he wouldn’t have ran,” trainer Mark Casse said of Enforceable. “He came out of the Louisiana Derby tired and beat up and there is no way that I would have ran him in the Derby. It took him a long time. We brought him home (to Ocala, Florida) and it took us about two months to get back to where I was happy training him.”

Enforceable returned to run fourth in the July 11 Blue Grass Stakes (GII), a finish his Hall of Fame trainer feels is better than it looks given that the colt was basically on the farm for two months.

“I kind of feel like each day, he’s gotten bigger and better. And his race in the Blue Grass, I thought it was a good race,” Casse said. “Obviously speed is dangerous at Keeneland and there was no way that he could have been 100 percent ready for that given that he had two months off. I thought it was a good comeback race. He was probably 80-85 percent and I feel he’s 100 percent now. That’s why we’re trying it.”

FINNICK THE FIERCE – Arnaldo Monge and trainer Rey Hernandez’s Finnick the Fierce galloped at The Thoroughbred Center in Lexington on Monday morning and then vanned to Churchill Downs.

“Everything is good,” Hernandez said.

Martin Garcia has the Derby mount.

HONOR A. P. – C R K Stable’s Santa Anita Derby (G1) winner was en route from California Monday morning along with a large contingent of West Coast horses.

KING GUILLERMO – Victoria’s Ranch’s King Guillermo galloped 1 ½ miles Monday under exercise rider Edgar Garcia.

The colt trained Monday under the watchful eye of trainer Juan Avila, owner Victor Martinez and jockey Samy Camacho, who arrived Sunday from Florida.

MAJOR FED – Lloyd Madison Farm’s Major Fed jogged about 1 5/8 miles and schooled in the new Kentucky Derby 20-horse starting gate.

Major Fed was accompanied to the track by 50-year-old exercise rider Margarito Fierro. The Mexico City-native Fierro has worked for Foley for more than 15 years and Major Fed is the first Derby contender he has ridden.

“Horses are my life,” Fierro said. “I grew up in Mexico and lived and breathed horses from a young age. I credit them with everything I’ve done in my life. A couple of years ago I was battling cancer and the horses were my therapy. When I’m around them, all the stress of life goes away.”

Major Fed is scheduled to return to the track at his normal training time of 5:15 a.m. on Tuesday.

MAX PLAYER – George Hall and SportBLX Thoroughbred Corp.’s Max Player was the last Derby horse to complete his final work Monday morning, breezing an easy half-mile in :49.80 at 5:50 a.m. with regular exercise rider Juan Vargas aboard.

The Honor Code colt put up splits of :12.40 and :24.40 before completing his work and galloping out in 1:02.80.

“He’s continuing to do well,” Hall of Fame trainer Steve

Asmussen said. “I’m extremely excited about how he’s going to run in the Kentucky Derby. I love how he looks going over the racetrack. His attitude is really good. He came in with a really good attitude and was moving really well. That has stayed the same.”

Asmussen assumed the training of Max Player from Linda Rice shortly after the horse finished third to likely Kentucky Derby favorite Tiz the Law in the Travers Stakes (G1) Aug. 8.

“The reason he is here is to give him time to acclimate to the track and the surroundings to hopefully make up the difference. He’s been third to Tiz the Law in his last two races. That horse is the deserving favorite and a tall task. You only have one chance to run in the Derby and we just wanted to do everything we could to give him his best chance.”

MONEY MOVES – Robert LaPenta and Bortolazzo Stable’s Money Moves galloped a mile and three-eighths Monday morning at Saratoga and is scheduled to ship to Churchill Downs early Tuesday morning for trainer Todd Pletcher.

Money Moves will be housed in Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas’ barn.

MR. BIG NEWS – Allied Family Stables’ $200,000 Oaklawn Stakes winner Mr. Big News will enter Saturday’s Kentucky Derby (GI), according to owner Chester Thomas.

“I know we don’t have some of the numbers like Tiz the Law, Art Collector and Honor A. P. but this horse is improving,” Thomas said. “I think he is absolutely going to love the distance and will make a big run late.”

Trained by Bret Calhoun, Mr. Big News will be ridden by Gabriel Saez in the Derby.

NECKER ISLAND – Raymond Daniels, Wayne Scherr and Will Harbut Racing Stables’ Necker Island jogged once around under Hillary Hartman and then stood in the starting gate in the mile chute.

Necker Island was claimed by trainer Chris Hartman in June out of an optional claiming race for $100,000 in which he finished fourth behind Art Collector, who figures to be one of the top choices for Saturday’s Run for the Roses.

“The initial goal was we hoped to hold his previous form and not ugly it up,” Hartman said. “We knew we were getting a nice horse who was already proven and obviously we were hoping he would be a Derby horse.”

In two starts for Hartman, Necker Island has earned back $50,455 of his claiming price with third-place finishes in the Indiana Derby (GIII) and the Ellis Park Derby.

NY TRAFFIC – Haskell Invitational (GI) runner-up Ny Traffic continued his Kentucky Derby preparations with a 1 ½-mile gallop at Saratoga Monday and will arrive in Kentucky Tuesday, nearly 24 later than expected.

Trainer Saffie Joseph Jr. said via text that the horse “was doing well” and that he had “no concerns” about the travel delay.

SOLE VOLANTE – Reeves Thoroughbred Racing and Andie Biancone’s Sole Volante got his first feel of the Churchill track Monday, one day after vanning from his base at Palm Meadows in South Florida. With his co-owner aboard, the Karakontie (JPN) gelding jogged one mile around the track.

Andie Biancone, also the daughter of trainer Patrick Biancone, said she’s seeing signs that her horse is ready for a top effort in the Kentucky Derby.

“Normally, he’s the quietest horse in the barn, so yesterday (Sunday) when I took him off the van, I didn’t even use a lip chain and he dragged me off the van. This morning (Monday), he felt better than he ever has.”

Biancone said Sole Volante would gallop Tuesday and likely school in the paddock with herself or jockey Luca Panici on board.

STORM THE COURT – David Bernsen, Exline-Border Racing, Dan Hudock and Susanna Wilson’s Storm the Court is scheduled to arrive at Churchill Downs Monday afternoon from his Southern California base.

Trainer Peter Eurton is scheduled to arrive in Louisville at 10 Tuesday morning and plans to be at the post position draw scheduled at 11 o’clock.

THOUSAND WORDS – Albaugh Family Stables and Spendthrift Farm’s Thousand Words was slated to arrive in Louisville along with his Bob Baffert-trained stablemates around 3 p.m.

While the son of Pioneerof the Nile won his first three career starts, including two graded stakes, Thousand Words is among the Kentucky Derby contenders who likely would have had to sit this classic out had it not moved from its usual spot of the first Saturday in May. After starting his sophomore season with a victory in the Robert B. Lewis Stakes (GII) in February, Thousand Words went off form, finishing fourth in the San Felipe Stakes (GII) and 11th in the Oaklawn Stakes on April 11, prompting Baffert to give him a brief freshening.

The mid-spring hiatus served Thousand Woods well as he has regained his top form since returning to the races in July. Following a runner-up effort in the Los Alamitos Derby (GIII), the bay colt defeated Santa Anita Derby (GI) winner Honor A. P. to capture the Aug. 1 Shared Belief Stakes.

“There has not been one positive thing from Covid that I can think of other than it allowed us to run in the Kentucky Derby, because we wouldn’t have deserved to be in the Kentucky Derby in May,” said Jason Loutsch, racing manager for Albaugh Family Stables. “We would have qualified probably with points but the horse just wasn’t doing well in May and after that Oaklawn race, Bob was really frustrated with him, we were frustrated and as a group, so we decided to just give him 30-45 days and get him happy, put some weight on. And we’re really happy with the way the horse has come around. The last race, we couldn’t be happier with. Obviously Honor A. P. was in there and to compete with those horses and fight and not give up down the lane, that gives us a lot of confidence going into this weekend.”

TIZ THE LAW – With trainer Barclay Tagg already en route to Kentucky, assistant trainer Robin Smullen was left in charge of the presumptive Kentucky Derby favorite’s morning training and was aboard as he galloped twice around the Saratoga track.

The flight bringing Tiz the Law from New York to Kentucky has been delayed until Tuesday. Also, on the flight are fellow Kentucky Derby starters Ny Traffic and Money Moves.

WINNING IMPRESSION – West Point Thoroughbreds’ and Pearl Racing’s graded stakes placed Winning Impression galloped about 1 ½ miles Monday under exercise rider Emerson Chavez.

SHAPING UP: THE KENTUCKY DERBY – Likely starters in the 146th running of the $3 million, Grade I Kentucky Derby presented by Woodford Reserve to be run for 3-year-olds at 1 1/4 miles on Saturday, Sept. 5 (in order of preference): Tiz the Law (jockey Manny Franco); Authentic (John Velazquez); Art Collector (Brian Hernandez Jr.); Honor A. P. (Mike Smith); Ny Traffic (Paco Lopez); King Guillermo (Samy Camacho); Thousand Words (Florent Geroux); Max Player (Ricardo Santana Jr.); Enforceable (Adam Beschizza); Major Fed (James Graham); Storm the Court (Julien Leparoux); Attachment Rate (Joe Talamo); Sole Volante (Luca Panici); Finnick the Fierce (Martin Garcia); Winning Impression (Joe Rocco Jr.); Necker Island (Miguel Mena); Mr. Big News (Gabriel Saez); Money Moves (Javier Castellano).


BAYERNESS – Belladonna Racing’s Indiana Oaks runner-up Bayerness walked trainer Cherie DeVaux Trackside Louisville shedrow Monday morning. She drew post No. 6 in the Oaks.

“I’m so laid back when it comes to stuff like this,” Cherie DeVaux said. “It’s pretty cool to be able to run in the Oaks. I think we can be competitive to hit the board.”

DONNA VELOCE – Kaleem Shah, Mrs. John Magnier, Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith’s Donna Veloce was scheduled to arrive at Churchill Downs Monday afternoon from her Southern California base.

Trained by Simon Callaghan, Donna Veloce drew post position three for the Oaks and is the fourth choice on the morning line at 15-1.

Via text, Callaghan offered a thumbs up with Donna Veloce’s spot in the starting gate.

DREAM MARIE – Miracle’s International Trading Inc.’s Dream Marie jogged once around the Churchill Downs track under exercise rider Ian Craven on her first morning under the Twin Spires since arriving from South Florida Sunday.

This is also the first trip to Churchill Downs for Dream Marie’s Florida-based trainer Matthew Williams, who was happy to learn his Graydar filly has been given a “lucky” stall. She is in the same stall as 2016 Kentucky Oaks winner Cathryn Sophia and 2018 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies winner Jaywalk.

“Let’s hope some of that rubs off on her,” Williams said.

GAMINE – The even-money morning line favorite for the Longines Kentucky Oaks (GI) was slated to arrive in Louisville along with her Bob Baffert-trained stablemates around 3 p.m.

Gamine drew post position five for the Oaks.

“I like (post) five,” Baffert said. “Being in the middle is always good. Right now the most important thing is that she ships well, that she relaxes, gets in there and breaks well. She’s training really well. We still have a few more hurdles, I’m happy with that spot.”

(Will she go to the lead?) “You know I leave that up to Johnny (Velazquez). It depends on how she breaks. But she’s really quick. She’s really quick away from there. She’s just fast, she’s really fast. I’m not even thinking about that though right now. We’re just focused on getting there, getting settled in, handling everything well. We still have a long way to go.”

HOPEFUL GROWTH – St. Elias Stable’s Monmouth Oaks (GIII) winner Hopeful Growth trained early Monday morning at Monmouth Park and will have one more day of training at her home track before shipping to Kentucky Tuesday afternoon.

When told he had drawn post position eight, trainer Anthony Margotta gave just a one word response via text, “Beautiful.”

PROJECT WHISKEY – Cash is King and LC Racing’s Project Whiskey is passing on the Kentucky Oaks and instead will point to the Black-Eyed Susan (GII) at Pimlico on Oct. 3 according to trainer Butch Reid.

SHEDARESTHEDEVIL – Qatar Racing, Flurry Racing Stable and Big Aut Farms’ Shedaresthedevil galloped about 1 ½ miles Monday with Edvin Vargas up for trainer Brad Cox.

Shedaresthedevil drew post No. 7 in the Oaks.

“Everything is great,” Cox said. “Nothing more we can do now.”

SPEECH – Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners, Madaket Stables and Heider Family Stables’ Speech was on the track at 5:30 and galloped a mile under exercise rider Osman Cedeno for trainer Michael McCarthy.

“I am trying to keep her on the same routine she has back in California when she goes out early,” McCarthy said of opting for the early morning training as opposed to the special 7:30-7:45 window for Derby and Oaks horses.

Winner of the Ashland (GI) in her most recent start, Speech visited the paddock Sunday morning and McCarthy said she may have another session prior to Friday’s race as well as a possible gate session.

Listed as the 5-1 third choice on the morning line, Speech drew post position four.

“We have speed just outside of us and on the inside, obviously, so I guess we know what our plan is now,” McCarthy said. “I’ve been here with Todd (Pletcher) with horses like Ashado and Rags to Riches, but to be here with a horse of my own is special.”

SWISS SKYDIVER – Peter J. Callahan’s Swiss Skydiver, installed as the 8-5 second choice for the Oaks, had a “basic” gallop and walked through paddock Monday morning.

“We’re just doing enough to let her stretch her legs,” trainer Kenny McPeek said.

Later in the morning, the multiple stakes winner drew post one of nine for the Oaks.

“It’s the shortest trip around there,” McPeek said. “I’d rather have the one than the nine. It’s out of my hands. We’ll just let Tyler (Gaffalione) do his thing. He’s a great jock. We’ll probably just let her run into the first turn.”

TEMPERS RISING – Mark and Nancy Stanley’s Tempers Rising drew post No. 2 in Friday’s Kentucky Oaks for trainer Dallas Stewart.

“We are ready and will come running late,” an exuberant Stewart said. “She wants this distance and will be trying late, that’s what we can ask for.”

Tempers Rising galloped early Monday morning and is expected to continue her early morning training throughout the week.

DERBY WEEK STAKES NOMINATIONS – Seventeen stakes races cumulatively worth purses of $9.78 million are on tap for Kentucky Derby Week at Churchill Downs, which runs Tuesday, through Saturday, Sept. 5.
