NEW ORLEANS — It appears Tom Benson’s race team will be sending two horses to the Kentucky Derby, Mo Tom and Tom’s Ready. The points standings to determine who’s in won’t be finalized for a couple weeks, but both Benson horses appear to be qualified.

Mo Tom was the pre-race favorite at Saturday’s Louisiana Derby, but got hung up on the rail and finished fourth. Tom’s Ready ran well to finish second to Gun Runner. Those three should all make the Run for the Roses on Saturday, May 7th.

After the Louisiana Derby, Greg Bensel from the Benson team talked about their horses.
