Such a runner could well emerge from Grade 3 Matt Winn Stakes June 13 at Churchill, as a field of eight led by 6/5 morning line favorite Fame and Power is set to contest the 1 1/16 mile event on the main track. Fittingly, Fame and Power is trained by Bob Baffert who seems to be on an endless run of good luck these days after guiding American Pharoah’s successful Triple Crown bid culminating with the June 6 Belmont Stakes. As a three year-old Fame and Power has proven to be a speedy and talented runner, winning two of three races this year including a stakes tally in the $100,000 Sir Barton May 16 at Pimlico. After setting the pace in each of his three 2015 starts, Fame and Power seems assured once again of making the early lead against a field lacking true front-runners. 

Bold Conquest tries to turn tables 

Bold Conquest (5/2), chased Fame and Power unsuccessfully in the Sir Barton, but did run well to finish second. Trained by Steve Asmussen, Bold Conquest ran second in the Grade 3 Iroquois Stakes as a juvenile while demonstrating his affinity for the Churchill Downs surface.

Lukas colt training lights-out 

At 12/1, Henry Jones could be a live longshot for trainer D. Wayne Lukas as the colt appears to be moving well over the local surface in morning workouts. Since May 25, Henry Jones has recorded a trio of quick moves underscored by a five furlong romp in 58.4 seconds June 1 – the fastest of 20 works at the distance.
