I went out there early to get a look at him, since it is not every day that a Derby contender comes through Chicago. The work was an easy three-furlong move on a very windy day, and hardly looked like a Big Derby Work. Still, it looks like he handled the ship well, and he looked like a healthy and curious horse.
Head over to Picks and Ponderings for video of the work, as well as the unlikely story behind Mubtaahij being on the Derby trail at all. I also posted more pictures of Mubtaahij from the morning on the Picks and Ponderings Twitter account.
