Lawyer Ron – never lost on the main track
by Robert Bishop / Globeform
Printer-friendly version

Lawyer Ron is unbeaten on dirt, coming off six straight wins, and he put up yet another solid performance as he raced prominently throughout to beat Steppenwolfer (who was closing from way back) by 2 Ύ lengths in the Arkansas Derby (G2) at Oaklawn Park.

A perfect prep for Lawyer Ron, but it was over 1 1/8 miles. Question number one; will he stay the distance Saturday? Well, he is not alone – as always we have a bunch of horses with talent but not guaranteed to stay. He was much the best in the home stretch in the Arkansas Derby though and may het further.


LAWYER RON (Langfuhr) GF 116+ 109++ 114+ 116+ / J McKee

His one flaw is that he is quite keen in his races – on the verge of pulling too hard – and whether he can be as effective as this over the Kentucky Derby distance, against other speedballs and with huge crowds screaming on either side of the track, is another matter. He keeps on winning but he also keeps of beating the same horses - Steppenwolfer was making up ground with every stride in the straight, having been well back early on, and he should get closer over 1 Ό miles.

Prior to the Arkansas Derby (G2), Lawyer Ron had obliged as a heavy favorite in the Rebel Stakes (G3) – also a Oaklawn – winning the race as he liked by 3 lengths from Red Raymond, who was staying on from the back and just beat Steppenwolfer for second spot.

The problem we have with Lawyer Ron is; he has beaten the same horses, and not ventured out into the bigger world. Also, his running style will not help him get the full Derby distance. Still, six straight wins, you can’t play that down. No horse can beat more than what is put in front of him.
