Louisiana Derby stretch battle heroes Revolutionary, winner, and Mylute will head to Churchill Downs soon for the Kentucky Derby.
“We’re going to head right to Louisville,” said trainer Tom Amoss about Mylute, who lost by a neck. “I’m still not exactly sure what our plans are when we get there, but our horse ran a huge race yesterday and we’re very proud of him. He came out of the race just fine.”
Lightly-raced Ground Transport, fifth in the Grade 2 race, is still maturing.
“He’s just about three months behind where he should be right now, but once he gets some experience, we’ll have a real nice horse for the summer,” trainer Michael Stidham said.
Pam Fitzgerald, assistant to trainer Al Stall Jr., spoke about Louisiana Derby third-place finisher Departing and eighth-place runner Sunbean.
“They’re fine today,” she said. “Sunbean got absolutely slammed a couple of times yesterday but he seems to be alright.”
