Honor A.P.

The winner of the Santa Anita Derby keeps looking better and better as time goes on and he could be in top form in September. Honor A.P. blew by the Bob Baffert’s Authentic in the Santa Anita Derby and looked like he wanted to run even further. The long Churchill Downs stretch could be the key for Honor A.P. winning the Kentucky Derby.


Although Authentic took 2nd to Honor A.P. in the Santa Anita Derby, he has some valid excuses for doing so. At the beginning of the race, Authentic broke awkwardly and was asked by the jockey early in the race. Authentic could have been over raced and although he didn’t finish as strong as some hoped, he can certainly improve off of his last race against Honor A.P. Since Authentic has defeated Honor A.P. in previous races, these two could be setting themselves up for a well-deserved rematch at Kentucky Derby 2020 contenders.
