Recapturetheglory galloped two miles on Monday morning. Trainer Louie Roussel III said, "Everybody says he's a longshot. As a trainer, you want to see them get better. There's an old saying, 'the women get better looking at closing time.' You kind of play mind games with yourself – is he good enough, isn't he good enough?" Rousell and co-owner Ronnie Lamarque also owned Risen Star who was third in the 1988 Derby and won the Preakness and Belmont.
