Kentucky Derby: Honor A. P. puts owner Lee Searing in the spotlight

Lee Searing and his wife, Susan, have won races like the Golden Shaheen in Dubai and the Santa Anita Derby, and have had narrow losses in Breeders’ Cup races, yet Searing, 71, might be the most prominent owner in the sport you don’t know much about.

It’s not because he’s averse to press, just that he’s not one to seek the spotlight. But it has certainly found him this spring, as Honor A. P. – whom the Searings own under their C R K Stables banner – has progressed into one of the elite contenders for the Kentucky Derby on Sept. 5.

Honor A. P. will have his final prep for the Derby on Saturday in the Shared Belief Stakes at Del Mar, and Searing is overjoyed he can actually see it.

Authentic accomplished what he needed to accomplish on Saturday, earning his first Grade 1 victory in the $1 million Haskell Stakes at Monmouth Park, and succeeding at 1 1/8 miles.

But the performance continued to leave doubt as to his ability to go farther, the nagging concern that has followed him throughout the year as he has progressed towards the Kentucky Derby on Sept. 5 and its 1 1/4-mile distance that looks like it will be a big hurdle.

On March 29 at Gulfstream Park, Dr Post returned from a layoff of nearly 10 months, made his second career start, and beat maidens. The day before, Tiz the Law won the Florida Derby.

Less than three months later, Dr Post, in only his fourth start, and third of the year, finished second to Tiz the Law in the Belmont Stakes. Those two are scheduled to meet again Sept. 5 in the Kentucky Derby, but they are taking different routes toward Louisville. For Dr Post, his itinerary takes him to New Jersey, where he will look to continue his rapid ascension among the 3-year-old ranks in the Grade 1, $1 million Haskell Invitational on Saturday at Monmouth Park.

It makes zero sense for Linda Rice, the most successful female trainer in thoroughbred horse racing to try to get an edge vs the competition especially the way it’s explained. Ludicrous, outrageous, stupidity, shame on the NRA and others. Linda has had other accusation, nothing became of it. Nothing will become of this. Go get him Linda! /
Why don't u give fans of drf a free form on Saturday's u won't lose any money and u make the country and tracks gain more handle because they won't be in the whole 9 bucks before the races even started total greed by drf ...take a note from brisnet the best handicapping data in country they have a 6 dollar program in one of the simulcast outlets I watch races at and their pps been better then drf last 28 years since I started using them
How can those of us who don't have a local retailer to buy the DRF (Las Vegas) and don't want to pay $3.95 per track every day get the print editions, even for $7? Overnight delivery?
Come on guys. Give free past performances to what’s ever left running tracks. The entire card. Do your part to stimulate the industry.
DRF should give free past performances!!
