Request for Parole to run in Blue Grass

Email

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Trainer Steve Margolis said Thursday that Request for Parole will run next in the April 13 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland, although the trainer is unsure who will ride the colt.

Request for Parole finished a close third under Pat Day in his most recent start, the Lane's End Spiral Stakes last Saturday at Turfway Park. Day apparently has committed to ride Buddha on April 13 in the Wood Memorial Stakes at Aqueduct.

"We haven't really explored who we're thinking about getting to ride," said Margolis. "The main thing is the colt came out of the race really well, and the owners (Sam and Jeri Knighton) want to run back in the Blue Grass. I'll breeze him once between now and then."

The Blue Grass is expected to be headed by Harlan's Holiday, winner of the Florida Derby in his last start.
