Mucho Macho Man will make his next start in the Louisiana Derby. Impressive Oaklawn Park maiden sprint winner Uncle Brent was purchased privately by Charles Cella and is now under the care of Lynn Whiting. No word on his next start but Whiting ruled out the Rebel Stakes. Corey Lanerie will ride Twinspired in Saturday’s Battaglia Memorial Stakes at Turfway Park.
