Every day, we scour the work tabs at racetracks all over the country.  We are looking for workouts that may be of interest and helpful to you — as both race fans and handicappers.  Some of the horses we will be tracking, you will know.  Some of them, you may not know — as of yet.  We will keep a keen eye and stopwatch to see who may be working well:

Bourbon War, who arguably could and would be one of the top horses for this year’s KY Derby, worked this morning at Belmont Park and far away from the hub of the racing world — Louisville, KY. The 3YO son of Tapit — who will likely run next in the Peter Pan Stakes at BEL — went an easy half-mile this morning in :49.31. That was the 16th best time out of 38 to go the distance. Sad he won’t make the Derby. Happy he still may make a top contender in this 3YO crop.
