After Jean Lafitte S. winner DECISIVE MOMENT (With Distinction) worked five
furlongs in a bullet 1:00 3/5 at Calder on Friday, trainer Juan Arias announced
that he would head to Fair Grounds for the February 19 Risen Star S. (G3).
Decisive Moment's drill easily ranked as the fastest of 21 moves at the
distance on the fast track.
"He was galloping out the five furlongs this morning," Arias said. "I got him
going the half in :48. Last week he got the half in :49 and change."
During that January 28 breeze at the North Miami oval, clockers caught
Decisive Moment going three furlongs in :36 3/5.
