Winslow Homer back in training


Winslow Homer, who emerged from his victory in the Grade 3 Holy Bull Stakes in January with a stress fracture to the cannon bone in his right foreleg, has gone back into training at Delaware Park, Tony Dutrow said Wednesday.

A 3-year-old son of Unbridled's Song, Winslow Homer is just jogging but could begin galloping next week, Dutrow said. Dutrow is hoping Winslow Homer could return for the summer races.

"If everything goes perfect with him he will be ready to run sometime in July,'' Dutrow said.

Meanwhile, Dutrow is waiting to find out if A Little Warm will make it into the Kentucky Derby field. A Little Warm, who is still at Palm Meadows in south Florida, would need several defections to get into the Derby as he does not have sufficient graded stakes earnings. Dutrow said if A Little Warm doesn't get into the Derby he would be vanned to Delaware Park to continue preparations for a start in the Preakness on May 15.
