Kentucky Derby and Horse Racing at The Downey Profile®

Friday's Update Highlights


Highlights from updates to our Looking Good, Worth Watching and Just In Case pages. Refer to those pages for details.

With John Sadler's DEMONIC (Worth Watching) nominated to both the San Vicente (Feb. 17) and the San Felipe (March 9), the trainer said Thursday, “He’ll probably go in one of the San races.”

"The gray horse will go in the San Felipe,” Bob Baffert reiterated Thursday about FLASHBACK (Looking Good).

Talking about the Monday workout of GOLDENCENTS (Looking Good), here's what Doug O'Neill had to say on Thursday: “He worked great. He brings it every day. I wish they were all like him. He’s very willing.”

Eddie Plesa on ITSMYLUCKYDAY (Looking Good) (USA Today interview by Jennie Rees): "We've already decided with the new points system, that if for some reason we don't get enough points in the next race, the Florida Derby, we won't go to the Kentucky Derby. Because I don't think I'm going to run him in a race between the Florida Derby and Kentucky Derby to get enough points to get into the race."

Ron Ellis' TREASURY BILL (Worth Watching) Thursday worked for the first time since his Jan. 27 maiden-breaker, four in :49.00 (14/27) at BHP.

Rudy Rodriguez' VYJACK (Looking Good) breezed Thursday, off the tab since Jan. 27, five in 1:00.60 (1/2) at AQU.

Bob Baffert on WAR ACADEMY (Worth Watching), explaining a Monday gate work. “I just wanted to sharpen him up. I don’t know what I’m doing yet (for his next race)."
