Oaklawn: Court comments on Archarcharch


Jockey Jon Court is the regular rider on Grade 2, $300,000 Rebel starter on Archarcharch, and looks for him to move forward in this afternoon's race off his win in last month's Grade 3, $250,000 Southwest at Oaklawn. Court has been closely involved in the horse's development. Archarcharch is trained by his father-in-law, Jinks Fires, and in addition to being aboard on raceday and for works, Court will occasionally gallop Archarcharch.

"I don't always get to gallop him, but I do enjoy it when they ask me to," Court said. "He's progressing forward in his training and his development. When he won the Southwest, it was only his fourth race and since then he's really gained leaps and bounds as far as progress mentally, as well as physically."
