Noble's Promise will pass the May 15 Preakness Stakes (gr. I) and will point instead for the one-mile St. James's Palace Stakes (Eng-I) at Royal Ascot
Noble's Promise, a banged-up fifth behind Line of David in the April 10 Arkansas Derby (gr. I) is doing better and will ship to Churchill Downs the morning of April 14 according to trainer Ken McPeek.
Noble's Promise took over on the second turn, opened up a commanding lead in the stretch, and held off Aikenite by a half-length to pull a 12-1 upset in the $500,000 Dixiana Breeders' Futurity (gr. I) Oct. 10 at Keeneland.
