G3 Lecomte and G2 Risen Star winner War of Will has officially been cleared to resume training, trainer Mark Casse reported on Twitter this Friday.
“I'm happy to report that WOW went through extensive testing yesterday which included x-rays and ultrasound,” Casse wrote. “He was cleared to start his training regimen which began today at Keeneland.”
The 3-year-old son of War Front was the favorite in the G2 Louisiana Derby last weekend, but took an awkward step with his hind legs a few strides away from the starting gate. He settled into stride, but never engaged down the stretch and finished off the board. Casse said that the colt was sore the evening after the race, but much improved on the following morning.
With 60 points toward the Kentucky Derby, the Gary Barber-owned War of Will should have no trouble making the starting gate on the first Saturday in May, provided that Casse determines the colt to be ready to run.
