Bob Baffert's DEN'S LEGACY (Worth Watching) yesterday worked five days after the workout before, another bullet, four in :47.20 (1/15) at SA.

Al Stall Jr.'s DEPARTING (Worth Watching) arrived at CD this morning and took up residence in barn 45.

Gary Contessa' RIDYLLUC (Worth Watching) is at Keeneland and will breeze on Thursday, per a tweet by the trainer.

Baffert's SUPER NINETY NINE (Worth Watching) yesterday worked a bullet four days before the SA Derby, four in :47.20 (1/15) at SA.


Deleted Doherty, who's entered in the third at Gulfstream Park on Friday, a one-mile allowance race, from Just In Case.

Something told us not to delete Titletown Five from Worth Watching. He's been added back to Just In Case following this quote in DRF.com yesterday: “He’ll go in the Derby Trial,” Lukas said. “Were going to do what’s right by the horse and give him the chance to run a one-turn mile. If he runs well, we’ll look at the Preakness.”
