Super Stock, the winner of last year’s Grade 1 Arkansas Derby, returned to the work tab Wednesday for the second time since he came back from a six-month break.

The 4-year-old colt by Dialed In was clocked at 52.0 seconds going a half-mile at Fair Grounds. Like his breeze last Wednesday, it was one of the slowest times among the workers who were on the main track in New Orleans.
