Sportsman's Park officials expect soon to receive the $1-million payout War Emblem earned for winning both the Illinois Derby (gr. II) and the Kentucky Derby (gr. I). They also hope to learn who will receive the bonus.
Trainer Frank Springer spent his final day with War Emblem Thursday, as the son of Our Emblem will be transferred to Bob Baffert's barn at Churchill Downs Friday barring anything unforeseen happening to stop the sale of the colt to The Thoroughbred Corp.
