Positive Response might have thrust himself back into the Kentucky
Derby picture when he pulled away in the stretch to win the $100,000
John Battaglia Memorial Stakes by 7 lengths Saturday night at Turfway
The Golden Gate Fields-based 3-year-old gelding won the Gold Rush
Stakes and California Derby but finished third in the Grade 3 El Camino
Real Derby. Trainer and co-owner William E. Morey took him to Florence,
Ky., for Saturday night's race plus either the Grade 3, $500,000 Spiral
Stakes or the $100,000 Rushaway Stakes on March 26.
