Patience. Simple, virtuous patience. It's the operative word for the
trainers of the three top choices in the Grade 1, $1 million Arkansas
Derby on Saturday here at Oaklawn Park. Whether it's Ken McPeek, who
trains Noble's Promise, or Todd Pletcher, who sends out Super Saver, or
D. Wayne Lukas, who has Dublin, all are hoping their riders time their
moves a little more judiciously than last time in this critical final
prep for the Kentucky Derby on May 1.
