Worldly Probable for Lecomte

Jay Em Ess Stable’s Worldly, third in Churchill’s Grade II Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes Nov. 28 and second by a length to Stay Put in Sunday’s feature for Louisiana Derby hopefuls, will probably be pointed for Fair Grounds’ Grade III Lecomte Stakes as his next start, indicated trainer Paul McGee Monday morning.


The Lecomte, to be contested at a mile and 40 yards on Jan. 23, is the first race on the road to the Louisiana Derby, and is followed by the Grade II, $300,000 Risen Star at 1 1/16-miles Feb. 20 and finally by the nine-furlong Grade II, $750,000 Louisiana Derby on Mar. 27.


“Worldly came back really good yesterday,” said McGee Monday morning. “I thought he ran a big race. He was a little rank early, but Cisco (jockey Francisco Torres) took him back and settled him down. I was pleased with the way he came running at the end.  Right now I’m leaning toward the Lecomte with him.”
