PPs and previews for Spiral and Sunland Derby// Pick of the litter added to Florida Derby cast// KDFW Pool #3 announced// more…

A full field of 12 will line up for the Spiral (G3) at Turfway Park Saturday. Multiple graded stakes winner Uncaptured is the favorite at 3-1. For PPs, previews and more check the links below// Steve Haskin commented on the Sunland Derby (G3) field and noted his surprise more heavy hitters are not shipping in given the $800,000 purse and virtual automatic entry to the Kentucky Derby for the winner. Shakin It Up will be the short-priced favorite, but he’s never gone two-turns before. Full entries, PPs, and previews below// Dale Romans says he will give Dewey Square, 7th in the Holy Bull (G3) and 5th in the Palm Beach (G3), another shot at the Derby. He will point for one of the major 170 point Derby preps. The announcement was made via a YouTube video, and it’s worth noting the production quality from Siena Farm is excellent. The major thoroughbred news sources should take a cue and realize there’s more you can do than just a single still shot camera on two people sitting at a card table// Pool #3 of the Derby Future Wager was announced today with Verrazano the individual favorite at 7-2 odds. It’s unfortunate they dropped Super Ninety Nine from the list as I was hoping to get nice odds on him. I still don’t understand how he is completely written off after one bad race with several excuses// Other updates for Wednesday included Pick of the Litter pointing for Florida Derby (G1), Carve likely for Arkansas Derby (G1), no rush for Looking Cool, and more…
