KY Jockey Club: Silver Prospector completes Asmussen, Santana sweepSilver Prospector outfinished 87-1 shot Finnick the Fierce for a three-quarters of a length victory in Churchill Downs' Grade 2, $300,000 Kentucky Jockey Club, with heavy favorite Tiz the Law another head back in third in the track's major prep for next May's Kentucky Derby. Owned by Ed and Susie Orr, Silver Prospector completed the sweep of the juvenile stakes for trainer Steve Asmussen and jockey Ricardo Santana Jr. We speak with both after the race.
Finite takes G2 Golden Rod over MotuFinite, the 4-5 favorite off her six-length victory in Churchill Downs' Rags to Riches Stakes, made things more exciting for her connections before pulling off a three-quarters of a length victory over 13-1 Motu in the Grade 2, $300,000 Golden Rod, the track's premier stepping stone to next May's Kentucky Oaks. We speak with David Fiske, racing and bloodstock manager for breeder and co-owner Winchell Thoroughbreds, Hall of Fame trainer Steve Asmussen as well as Motu trainer Kenny McPeek, who experienced his meet-leading 14th second of the meet. Note: Asmussen and jockey Ricardo Santana Jr. two races later swept the stakes with Silver Prospector's victory in the Grade 2, $300,000 Kentucky Jockey Club.
Clark Handicap: Tom's d'Etat gets his Grade 1The 6-year-old Tom's d'Etat, whose career has been hampered by setbacks, paid back the patience shown by trainer Al Stall Jr. and owner Gayle Benson's GMB Racing as he captured Churchill Downs' Grade 1, $600,000 Clark Handicap by 3 1/4 lengths over the late-running 3-year-old Owendale. We speak with Stall and winning jockey Joel Rosario as well as Owendale's jockey (Florent Geroux) and trainer (Brad Cox).
