My Boy Jack Takes Inside Route To Southwest Victory At Oaklawn

It was deja vu in Monday’s Grade 3 Southwest Stakes at Oaklawn Park, as Kent Desormeaux rode the rails on a muddy track to an upset victory aboard Don’t Tell My Wife Stables and Monomoy Stables My Boy Jack  in the $500,000 Kentucky Derby prep for 3-year-olds. Corey Lanerie employed identical tactics a half-hour earlier while winning the $500,000 Razorback Handicap with Hawaakom.

My Boy Jack, a 3-year-old colt by Creative Cause bred in Kentucky by Brereton Jones and trained by Keith Desormeaux, drew off in deep stretch to win easily at odds of 8-1. Combatant finished second, with G1 Hopeful winner Sporting Chance third in his 2018 debut and 6-5 favorite Mourinho, winner of the Smarty Jones Stakes for Bob Baffert at Oaklawn in January, fourth in the field of 10 3-year-olds.

Time for 1 1/16 miles on a muddy track was 1:46.00. My Boy Jack, a $20,000 yearling purchase at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale from Legacy Bloodstock, earned $300,000 and 10 qualifying Kentucky Derby points for the victory.
