Woolley Gives MNR the Bird

By Ralph the Cat

The Bird should arrive at MNR around noon on Friday. Woolley gave the Bird his final work at Churchill Downs Monday morning, an impressive 4f work in 48.4. The gelding galloped out 5F in a titillating 1:01.4 with Jamie Theriot up. Jamie Theriot, a likely backup to Mike Smith, didnt say much more than “hes fantastic” after dismounting from the gelding Monday morning. The gelding figures to put in his 5th and final work over MNRs surface early next week. This will be MNRs first Kentucky Derby Winner to run in the Grade II West Virginia Derby. The race is set for Saturday August 1st, with an early post time. But a cake walk will be unlikely, the locals think Mike Smith is too patient for MNRs egg-shaped oval…
