Updates on plans for Flashback, Verrazano, Revolutionary// New future odds, Flashback favored// Goldencents works 6 panels for Felipe

Great quote from Todd Pletcher’s assistant Mike McCarthy on Withers winner Revolutionary: “That may have been one of the worst winning trips I've ever seen”. Despite Revolutionary shipping to Florida for training, he very well could end up back at Aqueduct for the Wood Memorial April 6, however Pletcher says the Florida Derby (G1) or Louisiana Derby (G2) March 30 are possible too. If Revolutionary returns to Aqueduct for the Wood, he will most likely have a rematch with Withers runner-up Escapefromreality, who could sneak one race in before that in the Gotham (G3) March 2// Pletcher is still in a quandary over where to send Verrazano next. The Fountain of Youth (G2) Feb 23, Tampa Bay Derby (G2) March 9, and Gotham are all in the discussion, but he has problems with all of those- whether it’s spacing, quirky track, or the fact he’s already pointing other horses to the same races// Bob Baffert has decided to keep Flashback at Santa Anita for a likely start in the San Felipe (G2) March 9, which could set up an intriguing matchup with Goldencents, the current co-leader in Derby points. Goldencents had an extended workout at Santa Anita Monday where he went six furlongs in 1.12:40, the fastest of eight// Baffert also stated that prospects Super Ninety Nine and Robert Lewis (G2) runner-up Den’s Legacy will ship somewhere outside Santa Anita for their next starts, all dependent on who’s doing best in a given week// John Terranova, trainer of Sam F. Davis (G3) winner Falling Sky, said Aqueduct’s Gotham or the Rebel (G2) at Oaklawn are being considered as next preps, although the Tampa Bay Derby is still the most logical. Perhaps he’s waiting to see what Pletcher decides with Verrazano?// New future odds were released, with Flashback as the favorite down to 9-1 followed by Violence at 12-1, and Verrazano 14-1.  Full links below and you can always access the latest odds on the right sidebar// More opinions and analysis from the busy weekend, as well as retooled rankings// more…
