WE have a new clear favourite for the Kentucky Derby on May 1st in Life Is Good, and it is easy to see why after the son of Into Mischief made it three out of three at Santa Anita on Saturday in the Grade 2 San Felipe Stakes, a race won last year by his one-time stablemate and subsequent Derby (and Breeders’ Cup Classic) winner Authentic.

Life Is Good had accounted for Medina Spirit by just three-quarters of a length in the Sham Stakes here in January but extended that to eight on this occasion.
