Jaycito scratched from the Santa Anita Derby because of a foot bruise but could still make the Lexington at Keeneland.

Jaycito, scratched from the Santa Anita Derby on Saturday because of a sore foot, returned to the track to train at Santa Anita on Monday morning and is on course to make the Coolmore Lexington Stakes at Keeneland on April 23, trainer Bob Baffert said Monday.

Baffert is at Keeneland for the 2-year-olds in training sale, but said reports from assistant Jim Barnes at Santa Anita were that Jaycito "looked good."

"We got the soreness out of the foot," Baffert said.

Jaycito finished second in last month's San Felipe Stakes in his first start of the year, and for Baffert. The Lexington would be his final prep for the May 7 Kentucky Derby.
