News Summary:

Wayne Lukas has no excuses for Channel Isle or Will Take Charge who ended up 4th and 6th respectively in the Southwest. He said both colts could return for the Rebel March 16// Todd Pletcher says Capo Bastone’s slow final time in his return race Saturday can be attributed to having to race wide, but a 69 Beyer is extremely low and suggests the colt is a notch below. Pletcher said the Rebel is a strong possibility for his next race// Al Stall’s two Risen Star (G2) entrants may not make the gate Saturday due to poor post positions. Sunbean, an also-eligible, was also entered in the Gentilly Stakes, while the connections of Departing don’t seem keen on having his stakes debut start on the far outside// Dallas Stewart thinks Golden Soul will improve with the added distance of the Risen Star and a little more pace, while trainers Tom Amoss and Steve Asmussen don’t seem overly confident with their starters Mylute and Proud Strike// PPs and preview articles for Saturday’s Risen Star and Fountain of Youth can be found below// New rankings from Steve Haskin and Jerry Bossert// Power Broker had his second official breeze since the layoff Tuesday morning at Santa Anita, while Oxbow registered the quickest 4-furlong move of 18 horses at Oaklawn// more…
