Despite winning the Eclipse Award, don’t expect the trend of Storm the Court being overlooked at the windows to change. When he enters the starting gate for Saturday’s San Felipe Stakes at Santa Anita Park for his sixth career start. Looking to bet on Kentucky Derby?

The San Felipe Stakes offers 85 qualifying points. 50 of which goes to the winner on Derby trail. Which is why it is expected to be one of the strongest prep races of the season. In addition to being disrespected by the oddsmakers, Storm The Court’s jockey Flavien Prat, who rode him in his previous five starts, opted to ride Thousand Words in the San Felipe Stakes.

In Prat’s defense, Thousand Words, which is trained by Bob Baffert, is the undefeated winner of both the Los Alamitos Futurity and the Robert B. Lewis Stakes. Even though Storm The Court didn’t look very sharp in his first race of the year. Finishing fourth at the San Vicente Stakes, he is very capable of picking up the win at the San Felipe Stakes so ignore him at your own risk on the Derby trail.
