“King Humor is undefeated, he won his first start in February of last year, he did it impressively only two fifths of second behind track record for the 5 furlongs and a half, after that race there were several offers for the horse, his former owner decided to not to sell him, then we ran an Allowance, the horse won convincing and from there we jumped to a Stakes where the horse won but by a narrow margin, the horse returned with an injury, he underwent surgery, we gave him all the time the horse needed it, we are working on him since last December, for his come back, we have been training the horse in the last 5 months, I gave myself a lot of time, although I think that it is not 100%, I think it will make a good race, even with a real option to win, if the horse surpasses all the problems he suffered: surgery, rest, colic and other details along the way, we will see him again doing what he knows how to do. “said his trainer Victor Barboza Jr.
