Code West, Treasury Bill Ready for Matt Winn

Code West and Treasury Bill, both owned by Gary and Mary West, were two of 11 3-year-olds entered Wednesday for Saturday’s $100,000-added Matt Winn (GIII) at Churchill Downs.
 
Code West, who finished a nose behind Ive Struck a Nerve in the Risen Star (GII) in February at Fair Grounds, ran a neck behind Bellarmine in an allowance/optional-claiming race at Churchill Downs on Kentucky Derby Day and returned to win an allowance at Pimlico by 6 ¾ lengths on Preakness Day.
 
A dark bay or brown ridgling by Lemon Drop Kid, Code West was guided in his most recent victory by Rosie Napravnik, who has the call Saturday.
 
“He was ultra-impressive,” Napravnik said. “He was the class of the race.”
 
Treasury Bill, previously in the barn of Ron Ellis, will start for trainer Wayne Catalano for the first time Saturday. Runner-up to Shakin It Up in the San Vicente (GII) at Santa Anita in February, Treasury Bill most recently finished third in the Came Home at Betfair Hollywood Park on May 11.
 
“I’ve had him about a month or so, and he’s trained very well,” Catalano said. “Everything is good.”
 
In prep for the Matt Winn, which will go as Race 7 at 9:05 p.m., Treasury Bill breezed a “bullet” five furlongs in 1:00.40 at Churchill Downs on June 7.
