Day 11: #20 Isn't He Clever

Isn't He Clever Trainer: Henry Dominguez J. Kirk Robison and Judy Robison Silks
Jockey: Robby Albarado*
Owner: J. Kirk Robison and Judy Robison
Breeder: Monticule
Earnings: $188,000*
Next Race: Arkansas Derby
* Current as of April 1, 2012

Isn't He Clever is a Smarty Jones and Sharp Minister colt. He's got 4 wins and 2 places in 7 attempts. He ran strong in the Sunland Derby but was edged out by Daddy Nose Best at the wire. His next start is scheduled for the Arkansas Derby.

"He's doing good, real good," said trainer Henry Dominguez. "We're just hoping he runs a similar race to the Sunland Derby, but maybe wait a little longer this time. It's his style (to be near the front) and we're not going to try and change him."

A switch to jockey Robby Albarado should help in his next race. He'll likely need to finish first or second to have enough earnings to run on May 5th. We like his chances and currently have Isn't He Clever on our shortlist.
