Notes and bits from web and Twitter:
“Randy Moss on ATR: Holy Candy iffy for Santa Anita Derby. Sadler & connections to decide by this evening”- Steve Byk via Twitter

"John Sadler says if Keeneland gives strong assurances Blue Grass won't overfill, Holy Candy likely will scratch from SA Derby to run there"- Jennie Rees via Twitter
