GoldMark Farm and Whisper Hill Farm’s Mylute galloped 1 ½ miles under Maurice Sanchez shortly after Churchill Downs opened for training Friday
morning. A decision on the Preakness 2013 status of the fifth-place Kentucky Derby finisher will be made tomorrow morning.
"He trained well this morning
and showed good energy. I was satisfied with what I saw and passed that
on to the owners,” trainer Tom Amoss said. “After he trains in the morning, I’ll call the owners at 7 and
we will make a decision on the race.”
The other five horses stabled
at Churchill Downs under consideration for next weekend’s Preakness,
galloped Friday morning.
Going before the break were Claiborne Farm and Adele Dilschneider’s Illinois Derby (GIII) winner Departing, who covered 1 ½ miles under Trina Pasckvale, and the D. Wayne Lukas-trained
trio of Oxbow, Titletown Five and Will Take Charge. Rudy Quevedo partnered Oxbow and Titletown Five with Taylor Carty aboard Will Take Charge.
Going after the break for a 1 ½-mile exercise was Mike Pegram’s Govenor Charlie with Jorge Alvarez in the saddle for trainer Bob Baffert.
