Juvenile champ is one of Peter Eurton’s two Arkansas Derby (G1) contenders.
Juvenile male champion Storm the Court completed major preparations for the Arkansas Derby (G1) with a quick half-mile work April 27 at Santa Anita Park. The Peter Eurton trainee worked the four furlongs on a fast main track in :47 3/5, the fourth fastest time of 41 at the distance.
“I was pretty pleased with it. Just something short; we’ve been doing some longer ones and he ships tomorrow so I didn’t want to do it,” Eurton said. “But he looked really good getting out there stretching his legs.”
Monday’s exercise followed a six-furlong drill in 1:13 3/5 April 20 and a five-furlong work in 1:00 3/5 April 15. The Court Vision colt is scheduled to fly to Oaklawn Park Tuesday morning ahead of the May 2 Arkansas Derby.
