One King's Man heads classy field in Champion's Day Classic


Just five horses contested the 2014 Louisiana Champions Day Classic, and the eight-runner 2013 Classic lacked depth, but this year’s edition of the richest race on Louisiana Champions Day lured nine entrants, with high-quality horses at the top. Mobile Bay won the Super Derby and Zia Park Derby this year, and fellow 3-year-old The Pickett Factor might match him for raw talent. Yet it’s 5-year-old One King’s Man with all the upside coming into the $150,000 Classic.
