Court Vision Tepid Favorite in Turf Classic

Court Vision will break from post twelve and is the 4-1 favorite in a wide open renewal of the Grade 1 Woodford Reserve Turf Classic.

Rick Dutrow has lost his license in Kentucky so Michael Nevin will saddle Court Vision at Churchill Downs on Saturday. The veteran campaigner has banked more than $2.6 million in his 27-race career. The 6-year-old horse is not as consistent as he used to be but can still compete at a high level and comes off a needed 4th place effort in his flat mile return at Keeneland. He was necked in this event last year and can move forward today.

Prince Will I Am will try to mow them all down under John Velazquez. The turf marathon specialist enters in fine form and finished full of run in a nine furlong grade one win at this distance in New York last fall.











Consistent stalker Smart Bid should sit a nice tactical journey under Edgar Prado. The
Graham Motion runner got a taste of graded glory in a nose tally at Fair Grounds on March 26 and should offer value at 8-1 on the line.

Todd Pletcher's improving colt Doubles Partner is 2-for-2 at this course and distance and will be running late under Leparoux.

Overachieving gelding Little Mike has a nose for the wire and will take them as far as he can from the hedge under Joe Bravo. He is best up to a mile and will be hearing footsteps in the lane.

Get Stormy stole the Maker's Mark Mile but has to navigate another furlong and won't get loose with Little Mike signed on.

Al Khali, Rahystrada, Battle of Hastings, and Expansion are also capable of getting involved.

Memorial Maniac, Teaks North, Moryba, and Stately Victor are also entered. Caracortado, Citrus Kid, and Riviera Cocktail are on the also-eligible list.
