Irap and Tapwrit are scheduled to work Friday at 8:30 a.m. ET on the main track. Irap will have Julien Leparoux aboard.
The Keeneland press office says trainer Doug O’Neill will be at the track for Irap's work. Leparoux was aboard for Irap’s victory in the Toyota Blue Grass Stakes, but Mario Gutierrez will have the Kentucky Derby mount.
Jose Ortiz is scheduled to be aboard for Tapwrit's workout.
Baldo Hernandez, an assistant to trainer Chad Brown, said Practical Joke may also work Friday, but as of today his schedule calls for a Saturday work. Rain is moving into the Bluegrass area of Kentucky this weekend. Brown is expected at Keeneland today.
