Kee: Sat. scratches

Email

Was out at CD this a.m., where they had about 1 in 3 lights on for training from 5:45 a.m. til about 7:15. Everybody seemed to like it. Quite a few of the Derby/Oaks horses came out by themselves during the newly designated 8:30-8:45 window, with Sidney's Candy being the lone Derby horse to work, going 5 f. in company in 59.80 seconds. Looked fine.

Up at Kee today, we've got the G2 Lex S. as the 9th of 10. Only Connemara can make the Derby as things stand now, and not even that's a sure thing on at least a couple of counts: One, he's never run on anything on synth and no telling if TAP would want to go on to the Derby in case of a win, and two, this is one tough race where victory is assured for no one.

Only a few early scratches on the Sat. card, with a fast Poly and firm turf. Good luck today.
