Bold Conquest Gets Fast Track


Bold Conquest, third in the Rebel Stakes, worked Monday for the Arkansas Derby, going a half-mile in :48.60 on a track rated fast at Oaklawn.

Clockers had Bold Conquest galloping out five furlongs in 1:01.80 following a final quarter-mile of :24. The track was rated fast despite rain that fell on Sunday.

“He’s doing extremely well,” trainer Steve Asmussen said. “We lucked out with the race track today. I was very concerned with all the rain in the area, but it was a good track again this morning. His last two works have been the two best works of the year. It’s a good time to be doing so.”

Other locally based horses scheduled to run in the Arkansas Derby are Far Right, The Truth Or Else, and Mr. Z.

Bridget’s Big Luvy, who arrived from Maryland last week, worked a bullet half-mile in :47.40 Sunday morning for trainer Jeremiah Englehart. The Tiz Wonderful colt arrived last week after winning the $100,000 Private Terms Stakes March 21 at Laurel.

Post positions for the 79th Arkansas Derby will be drawn Wednesday at 1:30 ET in the first floor of Oaklawn’s Grandstand.
