Nerud, a seven-furlong sprint for older horses at Belmont Park. Trained by Hall of Famer Todd Pletcher, Life Is Good, a 4-year-old Into Mischief bay, won 4-of-5 starts last year led by scores in the Grade 2 Kelso Handicap in September at Belmont ahead of a 5 3/4-length win in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile in November at Del Mar. Life Is Good launched his current campaign with a gate-to-wire 3 1/4-length victory over 2021 Horse of the Year Knicks Go in the nine-furlong Grade 1 Pegasus World Cup Invitational in January at Gulfstream Park. He finished fourth last out in the 10-furlong Group 1 Dubai World Cup

If a trainer is going to give a horse a race & tells the rider such, then they should tell the public the same thing. No use for “us” to waste our money on your afternoon workout! That’s what happened in the 4th at Churchill Downs. Can you figure out which horse? @HorseRacingKK
