Jackie’s Warrior Leads Deep Pat Day Mile Field

LOUISVILLE, KY – Kirk and Judy Robison’s two-time Grade 1 winner Jackie’s Warrior tops a field of a dozen 3-year-olds for Saturday’s 97th running of the Pat Day Mile presented by LG&E and KU (G2).

The main track test will go as Saturday’s eighth race with a 2:48 PM post time.

Trained by Steve Asmussen, Jackie’s Warrior won his first 4 starts, a streak that included daylight victories in the Saratoga Special (G2), Hopeful (G1) and Champagne (G1).

Jackie’s Warrior finished third behind Kentucky Derby (G1) favorite Essential Quality over a sloppy track at Oaklawn Park in the Southwest (G3) in his lone start of 2021.

Joel Rosario has the mount and will exit post 3.

Figuring to be one of the main challengers to Jackie’s Warrior is Godolphin homebred Prevalence.

Trained by Brendan Walsh, Prevalence started his career with 2 blowout victories before finishing sixth in the Wood Memorial (G2) in his most recent start. Tyler Gaffalione has the mount from post 5.
