Arkansas Derby (gr. II) winner Lawyer Ron returned to the track at Churchill Downs on Wednesday for the first time since he underwent surgery to remove a small bone chip from his right hind leg in mid-May. Trainer Robert Holthus said the 3-year-old son of Langfuhr , who finished 12th in the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I), galloped 1 ¼ miles under exercise rider Betsy Couch. He had walked under tack for four days after returning to Holthus' care last week.
A date for Lawyer Ron's return to racing has not been determined.
