Kentucky Derby and Horse Racing at The Downey Profile®

Routine Morning at Churchill....


Six at CD Said Under Preakness Consideration

By Dick Downey

Things were quiet at Churchill Downs on Thursday moring for six horses said by the Churchill press office as being under consideration for the Preakness.

Exaggerator, second in the Kentucky Derby, walked the shedrow at Barn 25.  Cherry Wine, off since finishing third in the Toyota Blue Grass Stakes, galloped 1 1/2 mile under Faustino Aguilar after the morning renovation break.

Collected, the Lexington Stakes winner, galloped 1 1/2 mile under George Alvarez before the break. Dazzling Gem, fourth in the Arkansas Derby, galloped 1 3/8 mile under Fernando Espinoza after the break.

Fellowship, fourth in the Pay Day Mile, galloped a mile before the break under Brian O’Leary. And Gun Runner, third in the Derby, jogged to the starting gate where he stood before galloping nearly once around under Carlos Rosas.

Collected, Cherry Wine and Dazzling Gem are scheduled for workouts beneath the Twin Spires before leaving for Baltimore.
