Private Vow works for Arkansas Derby


Private Vow breezed five furlongs in company in a bullet 1:00.34 at Oaklawn Park on Tuesday, his first work since finishing seventh in his seasonal debut in the Grade 3, $300,000 Rebel Stakes. Trainer Steve Asmussen is pointing Private Vow, a two-time Grade 2 winner last year, to the Grade 2, $1 million Arkansas Derby on April 15.
