"The horse is doing great," said War Emblem's trainer Bob Baffert. "I am happy with the draw. I wanted an outside post. He is a fast horse. He can leave there and dictate the kind of pace that he wants." War Emblem arrived in New York Wednesday morning via airplane from Kentucky.
Wiseman's Ferry is one of the few in the race with enough speed to challenge War Emblem on the front end. Trainer Bobby Frankel, whose entry Medaglia d'Oro will break from post 8, said: "The horse on the inside (Wiseman's Ferry) is going to be dictating the pace. If he was in the race by himself, he might win it.".
Note: Puzzlement is a late scratch due to a bruised foot.
