Looking Good

El Padrino was elevated from Worth Watching after his nose decision over Mark Valeski in the Grade II Risen Star Stakes. Looking for him to return in the Grade II Louisiana Derby.

Worth Watching

Algorithms was demoted from Looking Good after popping a splint, causing him to miss the Grade Grade II Fountain of Youth. It's too early to know whether he can make the Kentucky Derby.

Casual Trick was deleted after his second straight last-place finish, one as the favorite in an allowance race, and on Sunday as the clear-cut third choice in the Fountain of Youth.

Discreet Dancer was demoted from Looking Good after a surprisingly dull effort in the Fountain of Youth.

Done Talking was added and is being pointed to Saturday's Grade III Gotham.

Fort Loudon was deleted after he finished far up the track in the Fountain of Youth.

Mark Valeski was promoted from Just In Case with his close second-place finish in the Risen Star.

Mr. Bowling was demoted from Looking Good after the worst relative performance of the weekend -- last in the Risen Star after winning the Grade III Lecomte.

News Pending was added after running second in the Fountain of Youth. He has one win in seven starts.

Our Entourage was an impressive turf winner at Gulfstream Park on Saturday in his 2012 debut, so he was moved up from Just In Case.

Just In Case

Brigand was deleted after numerous workouts led to a way-off-the-board finish on the downhill course at Santa Anita over the weekend.

Csaba only lasted a few days on this list. He beat Casual Trick but nothing else in the Fountain of Youth.

Went the Day Well has been added and is being pointed to Saturday's Gotham.

Windsurfer has been added and could show up in the Grade III Tampa Bay Derby.
