    DISCREETNESS SHOWS GRIT IN SMARTY JONESBy Tom LaMarra

    Discreetness, winner of the Springboard Mile in his first start around two turns, followed up with another two-turn victory in the Smarty Jones Stakes

    for 3-year-olds Jan. 18 at Oaklawn Park.

    The one-mile race provided Discreetness 10

    points on the "Road to the Kentucky Derby." Dwight

    Pruett's Xpress Thoroughbreds purchased the Dis-

    creet Cat colt out of the Elusive Quality mare Fond-

    ness for $105,000 at the Ocala Breeders' Sales Co.'s

    March 2-year-olds in training sale.

    Discreetness, trained by William "Jinks" Fires

    and ridden by Jon Court, sat third most of the way,

    launched his bid on the far turn, and inched past

    a stubborn Gordy Florida. Heavily favored three-

    time stakes winner Toews On Ice dueled with Gordy

    Florida most of the way and faltered in the stretch.

    Synchrony rallied nicely for third.

    "We felt we could be competitive in this race," Pru-

    ett said, "and we have a nice horse apparently."

    The goal for Discreetness is the April 16 Arkansas

    Derby (gr. I). Other local preps are the Feb. 15 Southwest

    Stakes (gr. III) and March 19 Rebel Stakes (gr. II). BH

    NO TIME TO REST FOR TEAM PHAROAHBy Ron Mitchell

    There was no time to rest for the connections of unanimous Horse of the Year and champion 3-year-old male American Pharoah following Sat-

    urday's late-night conclusion of the Eclipse Awards

    ceremony as they left the following day for Lon-

    don, England.

    The Zayat family, whose Zayat Stables received

    outstanding breeder and owner awards, along

    with the family of trainer Bob Baffert, who secured

    his fourth Eclipse, and regular jockey Victor Espino-

    za departed South Florida late Jan. 17 on a transat-

    lantic flight to London, where the Longines World's

    Best Racehorse for 2015 will be announced Jan. 19.

    American Pharoah, Triple Crown and Breeders'

    Cup Classic (gr. I) winner, is likely to be crowned

    the world's best racehorse as he led the standings

    last released at the end of November.

    "Being named the best racehorse in the world

    would be a huge statement," Justin Zayat, who also

    squeezed in a friend's wedding over the weekend,

    said via text message. "This isn't just America; it's

    an international award, which is an unbelievable

    honor for us." BH
