Monmouth: Haskell card update


I put on  my reporter's cap and came up with some information regarding the Haskell undercard, namely who's running and who's not. Ok, that's not really true. I just asked Mike Farrell, who knows everything that's going on here. Anyway, consider the following when handicapping the Sunday Haskell card: 

Thunder Brew isn't going to run in the Jersey Derby (race 7), unless he's rested enough off his course-record win at Penn National a few hours ago to wheel right back.

First Passage didn't make the trip from Calder and instead ran third as the odds-on favorite in today's Ema Bovery Stakes. Needless to say, she will not run in the Regret (race 8).

Charitable Man will not run in the Teddy Drone (race 10), and will instead run in an allowance race at Delaware Park on Monday.

Originally, trainer Patrick Biancone told Farrell that he would run Violon Sacre in the Fourstardave at Saratoga and Nownownow in the Oceanport (race 11) but that has apparently changed, and he now intends to run both in the Oceanport. Whatsthescript is likely to run in the Fourstardave instead of the local race, while Cherokee Artist was, at last word, still on the proverbial fence.
