Kentucky Derby contender

 

workouts for today (Thursday, Feb. 17) 

(with HRN Derby rankings):

 

Today's Derby contender works featured a five furlong drill from G3 Iroquois hero Astrology. 2010 Display Stakes winner Tiz Blessed breezed four furlongs at Palm Meadows. Before his Display victory on Nov 28 the son of Tiznow graduated in his Saratoga debut and finished 4th behind Sweet Ducky, Curlinello, and Astrology in the Garden State Stakes.

  

 

#8 Astrology – Worked 5f (handily) in 1:03.20 (6/9) at Santa Anita.  

#42 Tiz Blessed – Breezed 4f in :49 (12/34) at Palm Meadows.

#85 Mr. Commons – 7f in 1:25.60 at Hollywood Park.  

#91 Tech Fall – 3f breeze in :37.01 (2/6) at Parx Racing.  

#119 Leave of Absence – 4f in :49.40 (18/34) at Palm Meadows.

#134 Lli Bit O’Fun – 4f in :49.60 (7/16) at Tampa Bay.

Notes:

 

Crimson China (#113) made his US bow a winning one in the 8th race at Gulfstream Park on Feb 16. The son of Giant’s Causeway, trained by Graham Motion and owned by Team Valor, rallied strongly to complete his 9f turf journey in 1:46.80 and defeated highly regarded Pletcher trainee Ari C. He ran well in his first two all-weather starts in England and was originally slated to make his initial stateside outing in the G1 CashCall Futurity in December.
