Thousand Words was the winner of the Shared Belief Stakes, his most recent showing on August 1.

This entry has performed well with just one outlier, the Oaklawn Stakes (finishing 11th).

Prior to the 1st place finish at the Shared Belief Stakes, Thousand Words came in 2nd at the Los Alamitos Derby-G3.

The Shared Belief Stakes race was worth 50 Kentucky Derby qualifying point.  He managed to beat 1-5 favorite Honor A.P by three-quarters of a length.

“I think (Thousand Words) earned his way to the Derby,” said trainer Bob Baffert following the final Kentucky Derby prep race.  This was Baffert's record 135th stakes win at Del Mar.

“He ran well, but we’re disappointed he didn’t win,” Smith said of Honor A.P., trained by John Shirreffs. “I haven’t been able to get on him in the mornings and I think that’s made a difference. He’s just been going along there not doing much in the mornings.

“I need to be on him and get more out of him. But that’s the way it is now. That’s just the way it is. The (Shared Belief) distance is too short for him, too. Just not his day.”
