A Derby Prep and Two Sprint Tests / Friday, February 2, 2024

After a successful debut, Scatify moves right ahead to a Kentucky Derby prep on Saturday in the Grade 3 Robert B. Lewis Stakes at Santa Anita, part of a busy afternoon that will also include stakes challenges for Jaxon Traveler and Legalize.

Scatify aced his unveiling on December 16 at Los Alamitos for trainer John Sadler. Hector Berrios will ride him again in the one-mile Robert B. Lewis. He is 6-to-1 on the morning line.

West Point acquired the 3-year-old Justify colt for $120,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic sale of two-year-olds in training.

Jaxon Traveler will have a chance to become a stakes winner for the fifth season in a row, taking on a classy field in the $150,000 King Cotton at Oaklawn.

Joel Rosario keeps the mount after guiding Jaxon Traveler to a 5 1/2-length triumph last time out in the Zia Park Sprint on November 28.

Legalize, a 3-year-old colt, will go for his third straight win, shifting to South Florida for the $125,000 Swale Stakes on Saturday at Gulfstream.

Luis Saez will pilot Legalize, who is coming off a clear victory in the Sugar Bowl Stakes on December 23 at Fair Grounds for trainer Cherie DeVaux.

West Point also has Born Noble on tap at Gulfstream for a one-mile allowance on Saturday afternoon. Born Noble earned TDN Rising Star status for his debut win on December 30.
