Simplification rounded out the superfecta in the Kentucky Derby with a fourth-place finish. Like his running mates, Simplification had his hopes of cashing Show tickets left in the dust by longshot Rich Strike in the final furlong. He’s getting back on the horse (see what I did there?) and will be near the top of 2022 Preakness odds on May 21.
