Rockport Harbor and High Limit

So I think I mentioned Rockport Harbor two times on this blog last fall. He has been viewed as one of the strongest contenders for the Kentucky Derby for several months. It now appears that the injury I noted in yesterday's post may not take him off the Derby trail after all. So if you want to pull for the Smarty Jones team, but at the same time support a horse with a winning record and bloodlines that suggest he can win big races around two turns, he might remain who you want to cheer for on mint julep, I mean Kentucky Derby, day.

However Declan's Moon, the reigning champion of his division, is indeed out of the Triple Crown races due to a knee injury.

In yesterday's key race on the road to the Triple Crown the Bobby Frankel-trained High Limit easily won the Louisiana Derby. He looked very strong in what was only his thrid career start.
