Notes:

 

Gotham Stakes hero Stay Thirsty has his eye on the April 3 Florida Derby. Speaking of the Gulfstream showcase, Dialed In finished a solid 2nd behind his stablemate Equestrio in the 4th race at Gulfstream Park on March 6. Nick Zito was pleased with his effort and the promising son of Mineshaft should be sitting on ready next time.

Elite Alex is going to keep improving for Tim Ritchey, who trained his sire Afleet Alex, who ran 6th in the Rebel before winning the Arkansas Derby and eventually moving on to take the last two legs of the Triple Crown. Interesting note: He's an Ontario bred, so the Queen's Plate is probably on the back of the connections' heads. Also, people need to realize the majority of the 3 year olds you see aren't geared up all the way, the trainers wan't to slowly progress through the Winter for peak performance in May when it really matters. Examples of horses running huge in their last prep race and then dissapointing on the First Saturday of May are abundant: Sidney's Candy, Bellamy Road, and even Afleet Alex (although his third wasn't bad).
The workout report has been updated to include the Oaklawn horses. Elite Alex worked a bullet and Borel was impressed. He told Oaklawn officials that Elite Alex reminds him of Street Sense. He will definitely get pace help if The Factor goes in the Rebel.
