Lone Sailor won his second career start at Saratoga last September, ripping away to an 11-length romp in the mud over seven furlongs. Since then this $120,000 KEESEP Majestic Warrior colt has competed in six straight route races and hasn’t won again. He wrested control of the lead inside the final furlong of the Louisiana Derby but couldn’t seal the deal, ending up second while beaten only a neck at 9-1 odds. If you plan on banking on that effort as the start of a potential upswing, you’ll be rewarded with odds well north of 60-1 in Louisville.
