WinStar Farm vice president Elliott Walden added, "The Derby is definitely our plan, but we'll let the horse and Bill tell us if that is the right place. Our goal is the Derby every year. He's three for three on the synthetics, so that's why we thought of this race to bring him back. He just didn't show up in his last race in the Remsen. He was all legs and bones. I think he's probably put on 150 pounds since then. He's a bigger horse and running with a purpose now. I would think we'd probably go straight into the Derby, but the Blue Grass is also a nice race to win."
