The gaudy, 91 Beyer debut romp by ‘TDN Rising Star’ Life Is Good ($525,000 KEESEP) was so impressive in the eyes of the betting public that this Into Mischief bay closed at 5-1 odds in Pool 1 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager one week later, making him the top choice among the 22 individual betting interests beyond the “field” at 6-5. His scintillating 9 1/2-length scorcher at Del Mar was hallmarked by natural breakaway speed under a sitting-chilly ride by Mike Smith, and the runner-up just came back to win a MSW by 3 1/4 lengths on opening day at Santa Anita. After bulleting six furlongs in 1:10.60 (1/6) Sunday at Santa Anita, trainer Bob Baffert said, “We’re still debating whether Life Is Good will go in the [one-mile GIII] Sham S. or the seven-eighths [Grade II] San Vicente [S. Feb. 7].”
