Fly Lexis Fly joins Drysdale barn

Dual Peruvian Classic winner Fly Lexis Fly has arrived safely in the US for his proposed tilt at the Kentucky Derby on May 5.

The Badge Of Silver colt is northern hemisphere-bred, meaning he turned three on New Year's Day, and has been racing against older sourthern hemisphere-bred rivals, who have been three-year-olds since July 1, in the Peruvian Classics.

After initially contemplating sending his colt to trainer Angel Penna Jr, owner Oscar Peña changed course and shipped his stable star to the West Coast to US Racing Hall of Fame trainer Neil Drysdale.

Drysdale, who trained Hall of Famer A.P. Indy to win the 1992 Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby, Belmont Stakes and Breeders' Cup Classic, has nominated Fly Lexis Fly for the 75th running of the US$750,000 Santa Anita Derby on April 7.

If the horse is still in this country he has not been able to record a workout and this suggests either he's injured or failed quarantine. The latter was reported that he was being slowed by the quarantine process but that was way back in December. Hmmm?????
Could one of you HRN staff people contact Neil Drysdale and find out what is going on with this colt?
Travel takes a lot out of a horse, no $ on this one.
I don't get it, why haven't they run him in something??? It is March already!
You have to respect any two year old that runs a mile and a half, and wins. He not only wins, he destroys the field. The belmont is a perfect fit for this colt. Not sure why they have decided to pass on the Derby. If this horse is fit, and I am sure Drysdale has him in peak form, he should be a monster in Belmont.
Lexis is skipping the Derby.
Fly Lexis Fly is my favorite in the Kentucky Derby
I am liking this colt more and more...
i think they will just train him up till the SA derby seems to be better at longer distance races
Will they get another race on him before hand?
