Nothing wrong with running less than 10 days back for the derby, Alysheba, Avies Copy, Leo Castelli ran back in the derby back in 1987, after running in the Bluegrass 9 days before, and all three ran great in the derby. Caveat won the derby Trial a week before in 1983, and would have won the derby had he not checked at the top of the stretch. So Tiz a Minister is probably in better shape to run the Derby than a horse with 8 weeks off like Will Take Charge.
Its the best decision, the horse missed his routine, and its a bad idea to play catch up in the Kentucky derby
