Cliff Berry will ride J P’s Gusto in the Arkansas Derby. Flashpoint will make his next start in the Florida Derby. Overseas runners Master of Hounds and War Pact are under consideration for the Kentucky Derby but the latter has no graded earnings.

I think J J's Lucky Train may be able to rock the Bay Shore on the Wood Memorial under card. He ran well at two turns in the early winter, but his true talent is going one turn. Plus the best 3yo sprinters don't seem to be showing up for this one-Flashpoint, The Factor, Sway Away, even Travelin' Man are all elsewhere mostly looking at the Derby.
