Java's War not going to UAE Derby.. Bluegrass.

Titletown Five won't enter Sunland Derby.. Louisiana instead.

Was the Illinois Derby always 2 weeks before the Kentucky Derby? I thought it was 3 weeks out...

Was actually 4 weeks. Same as Wood & Santa Anita Derby. Since Churchill omitted Hawthorne from the point system, they figured they could do something different to give the race some importance as a Preakness prep.

Vyjack fans should be rather pleased if they haven't seen the video of his work Friday with Head Heart Hoof. Not only is the drill sharp, Vyjack finishes with a tremendous double gallop out.. YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PibDchGwWiU

The Wood is going to be terrific.. Current probables/possibles:

Verrazano (Pletcher)
Normandy Invasion (C. Brown)
Vyjack (Rodriguez)
West Hills Giant (Terranova)
Elnaawi (McLaughlin)
Are You Kidding Me (Attfield)
Mr Palmer (Mott)
Always in a Tiz (Schettino)
Indy’s Illusion (Tagg)
Quinzieme Monarque (Albertrani)

Siete de Oros (Preciado)**
Speak Logistics (Plesa)**
War Academy (Baffert)**
Tiz the Truth (Baffert)**
Power Broker (Baffert)**

Some good horses are going to miss the Derby because connections didn't shop and ship for easier spots.

Is anyone banging on the table saying how strong the Spiral and Sunland Derby came up? Both are 50 point races.

Wow I was unaware that Churchill didn't include them in the point-system. Was this due to any beef between Churchill-owned Arlington and Hawthorne, or the fact that probably a legit Derby Contendor hasn't come out of that race since... War Emblem? Sorry if I'm omitting some obvious horse...

Will Always in a Tiz still be ridden by Paco Lopez? I'm not giving him much of a chance in this field, but if he's matured a little I'm curious about him. He's seemed so green in his last couple races.
