Shadow Warrior (#110) breezed 5f in 1:04 (12/13) at Palm Meadows. Gallant Dreams (#139) breezed 5f in 1:03 (11/13) at Palm Meadows. Z Appeal (#140) went 4f in :51 (13/24) at Calder. Pleasant Run (#156) breezed 5f in 1:02.90 (8/13) at Palm Meadows.


Notes:

 

Kiaran McLaughlin said that Hutcheson entrant Crossbow might scratch in favor of the March 5 Gotham Stakes. He is concerned with the rail draw and likely demanding pace scenario.  

 

 

 

What the Nation is saying about Today's Kentucky Derby Contender Works (2-25-11)...

If Dialed In faces Uncle Mo in the Timely Writer I think he'll get pumbled. He's certainly sharp right now, it would have been nice to see him in the Fountain of Youth.
Does anybody knpw if NACHO BUISSNESS WORKED OUT WITH SWEET DUCKEY

It's not typical you see a horse with that late running style with the works Dialed In has; not sure what that means, but is an interesting stat. Gotham might be a better spot for Crossbow. It's coming up a little weak and he definitely could get a pretty easy pace with J J's Lucky Train running at Laurel, and Pants on Fire running at the Fair Grounds. Stay Thirsty might be the only other pace contrinuter.
Yes, but I don't think Dialed In is going to see Uncle Mo's face. More like his rear end from a distance!
Zito told DRF that the Timely Writer is still an option. Would love to see Dialed In face Uncle Mo in that one.
All these trainers are a bunch of sissies...they prefer to keep the horses in the barn instead of setting them loose on the racetrack then they worry why horse racing is no longer the most popular sport......let the horses out.
The sharp work for Dialed In is nice to see ... now we wait to hear on where his next race will be.
Bullet work for Dialed In. I wonder where he runs next?
