The Word On Simplification

Simplification will make his first track appearance Monday after arriving to Churchill Downs on Sunday. Trainer Antonio Sano arrived to Louisville on Sunday as well.

Betting insight from Dave Bontempo

Simplification has appeared in three high-profile efforts lately against other horses expected to be in the Derby field. He blew the start of the Holy Bull (G3) but rallied back to take second behind White Abarrio. In the Fountain of Youth, he also had a rough start, but captured the victory swinging wide. That race should give him enough points to qualify for the Kentucky Derby.

Simplification took an early lead and led the charge for most of the prestigious Florida Derby, but was run down by White Abarrio and Charge It to finish third.
