Improbable ‘Feeling Good’ In Routine Jog Thursday

WinStar Farm, China Horse Club International and Starlight Racing’s Improbable, who went off the 4-1 favorite in last Saturday’s $3 million Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve (Grade I), returned to the track Thursday morning at Churchill Downs for the first since being elevated to fourth in the Run for the Roses.

With Humberto Gomez aboard, Improbable came onto the fast track just before 6:30 a.m. (all times Eastern) and jogged once around alongside a pony with assistant trainer Jimmy Barnes aboard.

“(Trainer) Bob (Baffert) said to just jog him today,” Barnes said. “I am very happy with him. He was feeling good, bucking and playing. It was difficult to keep his feet on the ground.”

Baffert is scheduled to return to Louisville Sunday from his base at Santa Anita.

Mike Smith will ride Improbable in the Preakness (GI) on May 18 for Baffert.
