The Grade III Southwest Stakes is the latest Kentucky Derby 2017 points race and features the top three finishers from the Smarty Jones Stakes (Uncontested, Petrov, Rowdy the Warrior).

HRN Video Race of the Week: Grade III Lecomte Stakes

The road to Kentucky Derby 2017 makes a stop in New Orleans this week for the Grade III Lecomte Stakes at Fair Grounds on Saturday, January 21.

The two turn Derby prep attracted a dozen sophomores and Untrapped is the 9-2 morning line favorite for Steve Asmussen, who also saddles Springboard Mile runner-up Totality and Tip Tap Tapizar.

Running Mate looks like the one to catch for trainer Larry Jones and Guest Suite looms a dangerous contender for Neil Howard.

Tom Amoss saddled Mo Tom to win the 2016 Lecomte and he is represented by Shareholder Value this time.

Dallas Stewart did not like the outside draw for Saint’s Fan and he is expected to scratch.

NY-bred stakes winner Pat On the Back, maiden Arklow, and Phat Man, Marco Mischief, and Mark Casse’s Takeoff round out the Lecomte field.

Smarty Jones Stakes Video Analysis featuring Uncontested

Uncontested is the 2-1 program favorite for the 2017 edition of the Smarty Jones Stakes and he looks like the one to catch.

Warrior’s Club finished a head in front of Uncontested in the G2 Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes at Churchill Downs Nov 26 and should make his presence felt throughout.

Petrov stretches out in distance after two good dirt sprint tries and projects a ground saving tactical trip under Jose Ortiz.

Rowdy the Warrior is the best finisher and will try to get involved late.

The Smarty Jones Stakes goes as the eighth race at Oaklawn Park on Monday, Jan. 16 with a scheduled post time of 5:38 ET.
