Notes

- Tiz Wonderful is the first big defection from the three-year old picture; he's out with a tendon injury that's not believed to be too serious. Steve Asmussen said: “We don’t believe it’s career-ending....But he’s definitely going to be walking the shedrow and it’s a critical time to be walking the shed.” [Louisville Courier-Journal] He earned a lot of points in my book with his gritty win over Any Given Saturday in the Kentucky Jockey Club, in which he earned a Beyer of 101.

- Silver Prospector hopped a bit at the start of the Aqueduct Handicap and rushed up three wide entering the first turn trying to get to Liquor Cabinet, who got the jump from his outside post; he could never get past the favorite and backed up to dead last, ugh. But nothing was catching the winner on the this day who, according to the chart, cruised in under wraps.

Tiz Wonderful was listed at 10/1 for the Derby, if anyone cares.
