Casper’s Touch (#134) traveled 5f in 1:02.70 (25/34) at Gulfstream. Royal Currier (#166) dashed 3f in :36 (3/15) at Gulfstream. He is entered in a Starter Allowance sprint at Gulfstream Park on March 16. Ghost Is Clear (#183) worked a 5f bullet in 1:00.20 (1/33) at Fair Grounds.  

 

Notes:

 

Madman Diaries has scratched out of the Timely Writer Stakes. Uncle Mo’s task is even easier now as he looms the controlling speed against four rivals. Uncle Mo closed as the favorite over San Felipe entrant Runflatout after the first day of the second Kentucky Derby Future Wager.

Nice moves by The Factor and Sway Away. Premier Pegasus flattered the San Vicente form and I am looking forward to the Rebel. Santiva is now pointing to the Blue Grass.
Uncle Mo is racing in the Timely Writer
I had my heart set on watching Uncle Mo win the Tampa Bay Derby today but he was scratched. Does anyone know why he was scratched??
