Tomorrow (Friday, Jan. 25) is opening day at Oak Lawn featuring Derby prep race, The Smarty Jones. Lest we forget the importance of this race in the early going of the prep season, we're reminded that past winners include notables Will Take Charge, Flat Out, Uncontested and Caleb's Posse, during its 10 years since its inaugural run in 2008.

Worth $150,000, the Jones offers 17 points toward the Derby for the first four finishers (10-4-2-1). 

Gray Attempt, trained by Jinks Fires, is the 5-2 ML fave. The colt is 2 of 3 career, including a win in the Sugar Bowl Stakes at Fair Grounds.

Here is the field:

Long Range Toddy, Richard Eramia to ride, 122 pounds 4-1; Sleepy Eyes Todd, David Cabrera, 115, 30-1; Super Steed, Terry Thompson, 119, 9-2; Six Shooter, Stewart Elliott, 122, 6-1; Boldor, Ramon Vazquez, 115, 8-1; Forloveofcountry, Joe Bravo, 119, 12-1; Bankit, Ricardo Santana Jr., 119, 7-2; Gray Attempt, Shaun Bridgmohan, 119, 5-2; and Jack Van Berg, Jon Court, 115, 20-1.
