Jeff Bonde Hopes for Better Preakness Luck

Kentucky Derby day wasn't kind to Pleasanton trainer Jeff Bonde as Twice the Appeal finished 10th in the Run for the Roses, Smiling Tiger endured a terrible trip in running sixth as the 5-to-2 favorite in the Churchill Downs Stakes and Cambina had her three-race win streak ended when she came home third as the 4-5 favorite in the Providencia Stakes at Hollywood Park.


The day wasn't a total loss for Bonde, though, as Sway Away worked 6 furlongs in a fine 1:11.60 before the races Saturday at Churchill Downs and is on track to run in the Preakness on May 21 at Pimlico.
