Oaklawn: After withdrawing from Rebel, Glint has several stakes options


Glint, a stakes winner who on Friday morning was scratched from the Grade 2, $300,000 Rebel at Oaklawn, is being considered for a start in one of several races, including the Sunland Derby, said his trainer, Kellyn Gorder. He added that the other options for the horse include the Spiral or Rushaway at Turfway.

Glint won the $100,000 Fitz Dixon Memorial Juvenile at Presque Isle in September, and in his lone start at 3 was third in the $58,000 Mountain Valley Stakes at Oaklawn on March 15. He drew post 11 in the Rebel.

“We weren’t crazy about the 11-hole in a big field and a pretty deep field,” Gorder said.

He plans to breeze Glint on Sunday and then look closer at his options for the horse. Glint won his career debut last fall at Hoosier.
