Win Win Win Confirmed for Middle Jewel of Triple Crown

Yes. Yes. Yes.

Trainer Michael Trombetta confirmed Friday that Live Oak Plantation’s homebred Win Win Win is headed to the 2019 Preakness Stakes (G1) May 18 at Pimlico. Win Win Win finished 10th in the Kentucky Derby (G1) and was moved to ninth by the disqualification of Maximum Security. Trombetta said the Hat Trick colt had come out of the Derby in fine shape, but wanted to observe him for several days before committing to the Preakness.

“He seems pretty darn good,”

Trombetta said Friday at Fair Hill Training Center at Elkton, Md.

Win Win Win won the Pasco Stakes by 7¼ lengths in track-record time at Tampa Bay Downs on Jan. 19, was third in the Tampa Bay Derby (G2) on March 9 and earned a berth in the Kentucky Derby with a second-place finish to Vekoma in the Blue Grass Stakes (G2) on April 6.

Trombetta said that jockey Julian Pimentel, who was up for the Derby and has ridden the colt in five of his seven starts, will be aboard again for the Preakness.

Trainer Steve Asmussen said Laughing Fox will have an easy half-mile work on Monday. Ricardo Santana Jr. will be aboard in the Preakness.

“What a cool mind,”

Asmussen said of Laughing Fox, a flashy-looking chestnut with a distinctive big blaze and four white legs.

“He’s a really pretty horse. I just like his attitude, very relaxed, just recently back here and settled in wonderfully, got a good appetite and a great attitude.”
