Preakness: Win Win Win Possible for Middle Jewel

Schmuck: Why moving Preakness from Pimlico to Laurel Park might actually be a bad ideaMaybe Maybe Maybe. Live Oak Plantation’s Win Win Win is a possible candidate for the 144th Preakness Stakes (G1) May 18 at Pimlico Race Course , trainer Michael Trombetta said May 8. Win Win Win ended up ninth in the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve (G1) May 4 […]

“I have the luxury of being close to home for a change,” he said. “I just want to see the horse train for a couple of days and figure there is no reason to make that decision before I see that. It’s only fair to the horse at this point.

So far, Trombetta likes how the son of Hat Trick looks at Fair Hill.

“Today was his first day back on the track for a light jog. It was fine. Everything seems fine,” he said. “I just want to observe and make sure that I am completely happy before I go in that direction and make that commitment. It was a hard trip and it was a bit of tough circumstances with the race.”

Trainer Jason Servis’ Side of the Story – Kentucky Derby DQ

OCEANPORT, N.J. — A steady line of horses paraded out of his barn on Wednesday morning, with Jason Servis giving whatever instructions necessary to each exercise rider and then making the short walk to the track to oversee the workouts.

In one sense, it was business as usual for the Monmouth Park trainer. But the reality is that things may never be quite the same for Servis, 62, now one of the most recognizable figures in racing after Maximum Security became the first horse ever disqualified after winning the Kentucky Derby.

Maximum Security returned to New Jersey before Servis, the horse arriving at the Shore on Tuesday (watch scenes from the horse’s arrival in the video at the top of the page). Servis had maintained a low profile during the national controversy — until now.

“It was a bad call. The best horse won the race that day. They weren’t beating him,’’ Servis told the Asbury Park Press, while getting back to work here after making the drive from Churchill Downs, stopping in his hometown of Charles Town, West Virginia, to see his parents. “There are too many things that were unsettling.’’
