‘TDN Rising Star’ Quip won the “race within the race” in Saturday’s Arkansas Derby. The GII Tampa Bay Derby winner was a prominent pace presence as expected, and hounded eventual open-length winner Magnum Moon right up to the quarter pole when that rival convincingly torqued into another gear to win going away. Jockey Florent Geroux then kept Quip going well enough to win a four-horse photo for second. Although this son of Distorted Humor qualifies on points, Quip’s connections have not committed fully to a Derby berth.
