‘He Just Floats Over The Ground’: Life Is Good Fires Bullet Toward San Felipe

Here’s a bit of sobering news for rival camps of Life Is Good: the co-individual betting favorite at 8-1 with Eclipse champion Essential Quality in Pool 3 of the Kentucky Derby Future Book Wagering is growing up.

Winner of the Grade 3 Sham Stakes at one mile on Jan. 2, the $525,000 son of Into Mischief worked six furlongs Monday at Santa Anita Park in a bullet 1:12, breezing, for his next engagement, the Grade 2 San Felipe Stakes at a mile and one-sixteenth on March 6.

It was the fastest of nine drills at the distance and nearly two seconds faster than the average time of 1:13.86.

“He went really nice,” said Bob Baffert, who trains the bay colt for China Horse Club, Inc. and WinStar Farm, LLC. “I let him work a little bit. We’re really happy with how he went.

“He’s starting to mature and fill out. He just floats over the ground.”

Baffert, a six-time Kentucky Derby winner and two-time Triple Crown king, is represented by four horses in the KDFW pool: Life Is Good (8-1), Concert Tour (20-1), Freedom Fighter (20-1), and Medina Spirit (20-1).

The category of “All Other Three-Year-Olds” is favored at 9-5.
