Reddam Racing’s Irap, winner of the Toyota Blue Grass (G2) on April 8, is scheduled to work Friday at 8:30 a.m. ET on the main track with Julien Leparoux aboard.

Trainer Doug O’Neill is slated to be on hand for the work as he seeks his third victory in the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (G1). Leparoux was aboard for Irap’s victory here but Mario Gutierrez will have the Derby mount.

Irap had an easy morning Thursday, jogging twice around Keeneland’s 5-furlong all-weather training track with exercise rider Antonio Romero aboard.

Also scheduled to work at 8:30 a.m. Friday is Tampa Bay Derby (G2) winner Tapwrit for trainer Todd Pletcher.

Owned by Bridlewood Farm, Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners and Robert LaPenta, Tapwrit finished fifth behind Irap in the Toyota Blue Grass. Jockey Jose Ortiz is scheduled to be aboard for the work.

Baldo Hernandez, assistant to trainer Chad Brown, said Klaravich Stables and William H. Lawrence’s Toyota Blue Grass runner-up, Practical Joke, is scheduled to work Saturday morning, but those plans might change because the Saturday weather forecast calls for rain. Brown is to return to Keeneland this afternoon.

Also watching the weather is Kenny McPeek, who trains Normandy Farm’s Central Bank Ashland (G1) runner-up, Daddys Lil Darling. He originally had planned to work the filly Saturday morning. However, he might move the work to Friday and send her out at 6:15 a.m. Robby Albarado is to be aboard.
