Z Fortune galloped a mile and a quarter on Friday under exercise rider Carmen Rosas. Z Fortune "shows his youth," trainer Steve Asmussen said, and his leggy nature makes him a "great, big Ichabod Crane character." The colt's hard effort when second in the Arkansas Derby was encouraging as to the horse's talents, but is "a huge concern for us, a lifetime best with a big, leggy horse (having to run) three weeks later," Asmussen said.
