Crop Report in tough allowance race Sunday

Graham Motion and Team Valor’s Crop Report is entered in a tough allowance race going 1 1/16-miles on dirt at Gulfstream Park Sunday. derby 2

The son of Medaglia d’Oro, considered one of Team Valor’s top 3-year-olds, was a late-charging third on turf in his U.S. debut on Feb. 23. A troubled start, in which he hit the gate, left him last with a lot of ground to cover. Jockey Joel Rosario is back aboard. Crop Report adds blinkers and breaks from the 11 post.

The race features some talented rivals, including Saint Vigeur, Night Warden and River Rocks.

Saint Vigeur was flattered when Freedom Child, who was third in Saint Vigeur’s maiden victory, came back to win. Night Warden, a son of First Defence, looked impressive winning on a wet fast track at Tampa and gets jockey John Velazquez. River Rocks, the favorite, has won two straight.

Vyjack posts first work since Gotham

Gotham winner Vyjack returned to the track for his first published work since that race Friday at Aqueduct.

The gelding, by Into Mischief, went four furlongs in :51.23 on the inner track. He’s 4 for 4 and targeting a matchup with Verrazano in the Wood Memorial.

The Daily Racing Form’s David Grening writes about a lofty offer that was made for Vyjack: http://www.drf.com/news/aqueduct-wood-memorial-prospect-vyjack-learning-how-relax

Spiral bound Mac the Man works at Turfway

Mac the Man, who will race next in the Spiral Stakes, worked over his home surface Friday morning.

The son of El Corredor, who is 4 of 7 and 3 for 3 at Turfway, went five furlongs in 1:02.40.

Who’s pointing to the Louisiana Derby?

Zaikov one to watch

Todd Pletcher’s Zaikov, a son of Distorted Humor, made a notable winning debut Friday afternoon at Gulfstream Park.

Zaikov is out of the multiple graded stakes-winning mare Wait a While, who was also trained by Pletcher.

OAKS

Trainer Mark Hennig reports all is well with Davona Dale champ Live Lively as she prepares for the Gulfstream Park Oaks on March 30.

“She’s doing fine and had one breeze since the race (half-mile in 50 seconds at Palm Meadows on Mar. 10),” said Hennig. “She’ll have two more works before the race. She might be as good as any filly I’ve had.”

Hennig reported Friday that jockey Rajiv Maragh will have the mount for the Gulfstream Park Oaks.
