Bullet move for Flashback ahead of Bob Lewis// Revolutionary could face 6 in Withers// Purple Egg ready to hit track again

Bob Baffert’s maiden winner Flashback blitzed 5-furlongs Monday morning in 59:40 at Santa Anita on what was labeled a “Wet Fast” track. The move was the fastest of 20 works, and while there were no follow-up stories, we were left with a Tweet from Bob Baffert stating he went “great”.  Many are eager to see how Flashback handles stakes company Saturday in the Robert Lewis (G2) and whether he can extend all of the hype into the next chapter of the trail// Derby chatter also continues for maiden winner Revolutionary, but it doesn’t look like he’ll face much on Saturday in the Withers (G3) at Aqueduct. Of the seven horses pointing towards the race, the most accomplished is restricted stakes winner Smooth Bert. Siete de Oros will take some money at the windows based on his admirable defeat to Vyjack in the Jerome (G2) earlier in the month. Others considered probable for the Withers include Long River, Valid, and Amerigo Vespucci// Undefeated Purple Egg is set to begin training again soon. Trainer Jane Cibelli said he’s finally recovered from the effects of a fever and will hopefully be ready for the Tampa Bay Derby March 9// Gulfstream Park listed only four horses who are probable for the Hutcheson (G2) Saturday: Merit Man, Singanothersong, Honorable Dillon, and Pataky Kid// Holy Bull quotes, thoughts, and analysis keep pouring in// more…
