Vyjack gets new rider for Gotham// Stall hoping Sunbean makes Louisiana Derby field// Oxbow might have tight schedule// Opinions on Pletcher// Updated Wynn odds// more

Owner David Wilkenfeld seems to be enjoying the ride along the Derby trail so far with Vyjack. He was instrumental in the decision to switch riders from Cornelio Velasquez to Joel Rosario for the upcoming Gotham (G3) on Saturday. Wilkenfeld believes Rosario is better with handling aggressive horses like Vyjack// Sunbean could be on the outside looking in again if the Louisiana Derby (G2) overfills. The son of Brahms still hasn’t raced in open company, which goes against him when entering any of 3-year-old graded stakes at the Fair Grounds// Oxbow would likely make the Louisiana Derby (G2) field, and trainer D. Wayne Lukas revealed he could be forced to also run in the Arkansas Derby (G1) two weeks later if the colt needs more points for the Kentucky Derby. That’s an aggressive game plan asking for three races totaling 3 1/2 miles in a five-week span// There’s a pretty damning article from the Examiner on Todd Pletcher “running many talented Derby prospects into the ground”. Not only is the piece disjointed and hard to follow, but it is extremely light on proof// A post on the TwinSpires Blog is both properly validated and more positive on Todd Pletcher and the Kentucky Derby. Ed DeRosa argues there’s another side of the 1-for-31 story and backs it up with probability percentages and general common sense// Updated future odds from Wynn Las Vegas were released with Flashback a solid favorite at 8-1 followed by Verrazano 11-1 and Revolutionary 12-1. Links to the full list and PPs can be found below// Uncaptured continued his workout regimen with a five-furlong breeze in preparation for his sophomore debut in the Spiral (G3) at Turfway Park March 23// more…
