Looking for an intriguing long shot? Conquest Mo Money has the speed to at least challenge Always Dreaming from a good pace-setting position. He contested the pace from the outset in the Arkansas Derby and almost held off Classic Empire until the end. The Arkansas Derby was Conquest Mo Money's first start away from his New Mexico-based home at Sunland Park. In five career starts, he has three wins, two seconds and no thirds. He finished second to Hence in the Grade 3 Sunland Derby this year and then repeated the feat in the Grade 1 Arkansas Derby, losing to only the aforementioned Classic Empire.
