Maclean's Music, who earned an exceptional 114 Beyer Speed Figure in his career debut at Santa Anita, is expected to make his next start sometime during the spring meet at Churchill Downs.

Maclean’s Music, who won his debut by 7 1/4 lengths in a six-furlong maiden race last month, earning a Beyer Speed Figure of 114, will make his next start at the Churchill Downs spring-summer meeting, assistant trainer Scott Blasi said.

Monday, Maclean’s Music worked five furlongs in 1:02.40, his second workout since the March 19 race. The Asmussen stable is expected to stay in California until the conclusion of the Santa Anita meeting on April 17 and move most of the runners to Kentucky.

“He won’t run back here,” Blasi said of Maclean’s Music, who is owned by Jess Jackson’s Stonestreet Stable. “I want him to fully recover from his race. He’s training great.

“It’s too quick back here and he won’t run at Keeneland. I think Churchill Downs is for him.”

Maclean’s Music, by Distorted Humor, led throughout his debut and was timed in 1:07.44. Maclean’s Music’s Beyer Figure is the highest awarded to a 3-year-old this season.
