What the Nation is saying about the 2009 Coolmore Lexington Stakes (G2)...

By the time Keeneland track announcer Kurt Becker finally picked up Advice, he was already practically past Square Eddie and on to victory, for Pletcher and Winstar, in the Lexington Stakes on Saturday Read More
Not long ago it was all about whether Dunkirk would make the race, but after Saturday's Lexington, Pletcher's Derby roster grew to two, maybe three, after an impressive win by Advice.Read More
  • mshutty · Garrett Gomez will make a public announcement today at Noon EST on ESPN as to which horse he has chosen to ride in the Derby. Many are throwing Advice, the winner of yesterday's Lexington Stakes at Keeneland, into the consideration set but no announcement of Advice's Derby status has been made and let's face it, the decision really comes down to Dunkirk and Pioneer of the Nile. Is there any way Gomez would pick Pioneer over Dunkirk? No chance. Despite the lack of foundation, Dunkirk is the superior horse...proven on dirt and just confirmed his brilliance with a strong work out. It's an easy decision, Dunkirk's the choice! · 1908 days ago ·

Interesting middle move my Square Eddie... I don't blame them for going to the Derby, although they could have a productive year with him if they take it easy.
The Lexington? How in the world can this race have any impact on the Derby. Maybe who gets in the race, but that's about it!
This race is about as wide-open as it gets. Could see several scenarios and good prices. Hard to play Square Eddie as suspect chalk. I think Jeranimo should get a piece and might win if he's good enough. That 3w4w trip to Pioneerof The Nile is much better than it looked. Rusty Arnold could be tough with El Crespo - give him another shot on the poly...
This is a win/in for the winner...
Unraced as a juvenile, he has won two of his three starts this season, both at Fair Grounds. He earned solid speed figures in both. He has had three works at Keeneland, including a bullet move on April 7. It looks as though he has enough speed to be ... Read More
Saturday's Lexington Stakes is it for horses hoping to get graded earnings for the Kentucky Derby. The last horse to complete the Lexington-Kentucky Derby double was Charismatic in 1999.Read More

His Greatness has been added to the list by trainer Marco Salazar, while Nick Zito is considering running Swale S. (G2) fourth BRAVE VICTORY (Lion Heart) or SANTANA SIX (Hold That Tiger), a 3 1/4-length allowance winner at Gulfstream Park last time out. ...Read More
Breeders' Cup Juvenile (gr. I) runner-up Square Eddie, who had been expected to train up to the May 2 Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I), instead will first run in the April 18 Coolmore Lexington Stakes (gr. II) at Keeneland, if all goes well following a scheduled six-furlong workout Ap...Read More
