HOT SPRINGS, Ark. &ndash; Sporting Chance had a significant work Monday at Oaklawn, where he went five furlongs in company in 1:01.40 in preparation for his first start since winning the Grade 1 Hopeful in September at Saratoga. Trainer D. Wayne Lukas said if the horse continues to progress as desired he will start his season in the Grade 3, $500,000 Southwest Stakes on Feb. 19 at Oaklawn. &ldquo;That&rsquo;s his target right now, if everything goes well,&rdquo; Lukas said. &ldquo;He hasn&rsquo;t missed a beat. He&rsquo;s come right along. We&rsquo;ve done everything we wanted to do &ndash; even in light of the weather we were okay. We&rsquo;ve been pretty lucky. We&rsquo;re really pleased with him.&rdquo;Lukas said Luis Saez will have the mount on Sporting Chance if he goes in the Southwest. Saez rode the horse in the Hopeful.In the work, which came on a fast track, Sporting Chance broke just behind his mate, tracked him on the turn, and then left his company approaching the sixteenth pole. Sporting Chance then proceeded to move past a horse that had broken off before his set, with clockers getting Sporting Chance&rsquo;s final quarter in 23.60 seconds.
