Eskendereya's work pushed back


LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Eskendereya, the favorite for the Kentucky Derby, had a workout planned for Saturday postponed because of wet weather, though trainer Todd Pletcher said he still planned to work the bulk of his Derby runners on Saturday morning at Churchill Downs.

"Eskendereya and Interactif will go tomorrow," Pletcher said at 7:20 Saturday morning. "Not that I don't love all my horses, but I want to get the works for the others in, and I feel comfortable waiting with those two. The track should not be much worse on Sunday. I could even push those works back to Monday or Tuesday if I have to."

A steady rain fell early Saturday morning, leaving the track sloppy. Among the horses Pletcher planned to work at 8:30 a.m. were Discreetly Mine, Mission Impazible, Rule, Super Saver, and the filly Devil May Care.
