Sharp Humor works for Derby


Sharp Humor, winner of the Swale Stakes and second in the Florida Derby, tuned up for the 132nd Kentucky Derby with a swift one-mile workout Thursday morning at Churchill Downs. Sharp Humor, trained by Dale Romans, was clocked in 1:38 over a fast track.

Sharp Humor is one of many front-running types expected for the Derby, for which the final major prep, the $325,000 Coolmore Lexington Stakes, will be run Saturday at Keeneland. A field of 10, headed by Showing Up and Like Now, was entered Thursday for the 1 1/16-mile Lexington.
