Revolutionary made a surprise late attack to overthrow his foes in the G3 Withers at Aqueduct and is the latest Kentucky Derby 2013 flavor of the week for Todd Pletcher.
The winning BSF in the G3 Withers was 86 and there was not much
behind Revolutionary but he overcame traffic woes and a slow pace to
make the grade in his first start vs. winners. He still has some growing
up to do but clearly has talent and is bred to run all day.
Flashback (92 BSF) made it 2-for-2 with a facile wire job against stablemate Den’s Legacy and BC Juvenile runner-up He’s Had Enough
in the G2 Robert Lewis Stakes at Santa Anita. Baffert’s promising
winner has plenty of upside but still has to prove himself in a
legitimately run graded route.
