Baffert mulls stakes options for Kentucky Derby prospect Jaycito


Trainer Bob Baffert said on Friday that he has yet to finalize a decision for Jaycito’s next start, with the options the $1 million Santa Anita Derby or the $1 million Wood Memorial at Aqueduct, both on April 9.

“I’ll see how he works,” Baffert said.

Jaycito, who is expected to work this weekend, was second to Premier Pegasus in the Grade 2 San Felipe Stakes over 1 1/16 miles on March 12.

Premier Pegasus is expected to be favored in the Santa Anita Derby over 1 1/8 miles, a race also expected to draw Anthony’s Cross, Bench Points, Celestic Night, Comma to the Top, Indian Winter, Mr. Commons, Offlee Wild Boys, and Silver Medallion.
