Lone Star: Prepping for Lone Star Derby?

Email

Aces N Kings is the current 5-2 favorite for the upcoming fourth race, and suspect the one-mile turf allowance could serve as his springboard to the $200,000 Lone Star Derby on May 30. The mile and a sixteenth stakes will be run on the grass for the first time. Aces N Kings is a stakes winner on turf, and his trainer, Caroline Dodwell, mentioned earlier this year that she'd like to point him to the Lone Star Derby.
