Kentucky Derby and Horse Racing at The Downey Profile®

Where They're Heading Next

2/1/2011

By Dick Downey

Next-race plans for selected horses on our lists.

Looking Good list

ASTROLOGY--
Has not put in any recorded works this year through yesterday, Jan. 31, but if all goes well, the Grade II San Felipe in mid-March looks like it would fit.

BOYS AT TOSCONOVA--No next-race plans announced yet after being withdrawn from the Holy Bull. Feb. 5 update: Still no race set.

BRETHREN--
Nominated to the Feb. 12 Grade III Sam F. Davis at Tampa. Back in mid-December, this race was mentioned as a possible 2011 starting point, and a two-race prep schedule for the Kentucky Derby was said to be possible.

CLUBHOUSE RIDE--Feb. 5 update: Was being pointed to the Grade II Robert B. Lewis on Feb. 12, but he missed a work and is now being pointed to the Grade II San Felipe in mid-March or the Grade III Sunland Derby late March.

COMMA TO THE TOP--He's pointed to the Grade III El Camino Real Derby with the Grade II Robert B. Lewis a possible alternative.

DECISIVE MOMENT--Feb. 5 update: Now definite for the Grade II Risen Star on Feb. 19.

DIALED IN--Trainer Zito does not want to wait until the April 3 Grade I Florida Derby, but the Feb. 26 Grade II Fountain of Youth could come up too soon, so an overnight stake the first week of March would be ideal in his estimation.

GOURMET DINNER--Indefinite.

J P'S GUSTO--Feb. 3 update: The Grade III Southwest Stakes on Feb. 21 is next.

JAYCITO--Feb. 5 update: Was said to be probable for the Grade II Robert B. Lewis on Feb. 12, with the Santa Anita Derby a goal, but a Feb. 4 probables list for the race does not mention him.

SANTIVA--Santiva is being pointed to the Feb. 26 Grade II Fountain of Youth and then one other race before the Kentucky Derby.

SOLDAT--Probable for the Grade II Fountain of Youth on Feb. 26.

TAPIZAR--Pointed to the Grade II Robert B. Lewis, on Feb. 12, with trainer Steve Asmussen saying there are no plans to leave Southern California before the Grade I Santa Anita Derby.

THE FACTOR--Feb. 5 NOTE: The Grade II San Vicente Stakes going seven furlongs on Feb. 20 is still said to be possible despite missed training days due to a bruised foot.

TO HONOR AND SERVE--The Grade II Fountain of Youth on Feb. 26 looks like it'll be his first start of the year.

UNCLE MO--The Grade II Tampa Bay Derby on March 12.

Worth Watching list

ALTERNATION--Possible for the Grade III Southwest on Feb. 21.

ANOTHER SILVER OAK--The Feb. 5 Whirlaway would be a logical spot for him.

ANTHONY'S CROSS--The Grade II Robert B. Lewis on Feb. 12 is the next spot.

AWESOME PATRIOT--Feb. 5 update: The Grade II Robert B. Lewis on Feb. 12 looked like it was next, but Awesome Patriot isn't on a Feb. 4 probables list.

BEAMER--The Grade II Fountain of Youth on Feb. 26 looks like it's next.

BERT B DON--The Grade III Sam F. Davis Stakes on Feb. 12.

BLACK N BEAUTY--We'll have to wait and see.

BLUE LASER--His next start hasn't been announced. He was not nominated to the Sam F. Davis.

CALEB'S POSSE--Grade III Southwest on Feb. 21.

CROSSBOW--The Grade II Hutcheson on Feb. 26, with the Grade II Swale on April 3 a backup plan.

DETERMINATO--Presumably the Grade II Hutcheson on Feb. 26.

DIVINE MUSIC--The Grade II Risen Star on Feb. 19 would be a logical spot if connections want to try two turns.

ELITE ALEX--Grade III Southwest on Feb. 21.

J W BLUE--Grade III Southwest on Feb. 21 or the Grade II Rebel on March 19.

JUSTIN PHILLIP--The Grade II Risen Star on Feb. 19.

MACHEN--Machen is looking more and more probable for the Grade II Risen Star on Feb. 19.
Trainer Neil Howard has two other Risen Star prospects in Prime Cut (same owner as Machen) and Wilkinson.

MANICERO--The Grade III Sam F. Davis Stakes on Feb. 12.

MONZON--The Grade III Sam F. Davis Stakes on Feb. 12.

MUCHO MACHO MAN--The Feb. 26 Grade II Fountain of Youth is the next target.

NACHO BUSINESS--The Grade II Fountain of Youth on Feb. 26 might be next.

PANTS ON FIRE--No next start set after racing in the Grade III Lecomte and being moved to Palm Meadows.

POSITIVE RESPONSE--Grade III El Camino Real Derby on Feb. 12.

PRIME CUT--Grade II Risen Star on Feb. 19.

RESCIND THE TRADE--The Whirlaway on Feb. 5.

RIVETING REASON--Feb. 5 update: Said to be on the probables list for the Grade II Robert B. Lewis on Feb. 12.

ROCKING OUT--Not nominated to the Sam F. Davis. Feb. 5 update: Trainer Dutrow said he's looking for a one-turn race next.

ROGUE ROMANCE-- Grade III Risen Star on Feb. 19.

RUSTLER HUSTLER-- Grade II Fountain of Youth on Feb. 26.

SHACKLEFORD--Maybe an allowance race, maybe the Grade II Fountain of Youth on Feb. 26.

SINAI--The Grade II Robert B. Lewis on Feb. 12 could be possible with Baffert saying he's looking at the San Vicente for The Factor.

SOVEREIGN DEFAULT--No next-race plans yet.

STAY THIRSTY--The Grade III Gotham on March 5.

SWEET DUCKY--Next is possibly the Feb. 26 Grade II Fountain of Youth, but the April 3 Grade I Florida Derby is the next definite target.

TIZ BLESSED--Nominated to the Grade III Sam F. Davis on Feb. 12.

WEGNER--The Grade II Robert B. Lewis on Feb. 12.

WILKINSON--The Grade II Risen Star on Feb. 19.
