Revolutionary, ridden by Javier Castellano (white cap), and Mylute both were awarded a Beyer Speed Figure of 93 for their performance in the Louisiana Derby.

Revolutionary, winner of the Louisiana Derby on Saturday, will ship to WinStar Farm in Kentucky along with New Orleans Handicap winner Graydar for a few days before moving on to Churchill Downs later in the week. Both horses are owned, in part, by WinStar.

Revolutionary was awarded a Beyer Speed Figure of 93 for his neck win over Mylute in the Louisiana Derby.

 Unlimited Budget, winner of the Fair Grounds Oaks, and Palace Malice, a troubled seventh in the Louisiana Derby, were to ship back to Palm Meadows, according to trainer Todd Pletcher, who was at Palm Meadows in Boynton Beach, Fla., on Sunday morning.

Pletcher said he would evaluate Palace Malice over the next week to determine whether or not to try and earn a spot in the Kentucky Derby by running in a race like the Blue Grass on April 13.

“One thing about it, being blocked the entire length of the stretch, he didn’t have a taxing effort,” Pletcher said.

Dreaming of Julia earned a 114 Beyer Speed Figure for her 21 3/4-length victory in Saturday’s Grade 2 Gulfstream Oaks. She will train up to the Kentucky Oaks on May 3.

“You always worry about leaving something on the track in that final prep,” Pletcher said. “Hopefully, she can come back and produce another effort like that in five weeks.”

Pletcher said he hopes to have all his horses for the Kentucky Derby and Oaks stabled at Churchill around April 15.
