went out for a light gallop on Thursday. Trainer Bob Baffert said, "The horse went well today. The track is nice. We've got to keep the weather. I still want to see what my horse does on dirt. I've seen him on sticky mud. I want to see what he does on dirt. He went well today. He looked good out there. He's really bounced out of (the Derby) well. I've had horses that I've run there that you can tell it really took a lot out of them, and I really didn't want to bring them. But I sort of had to bring them to take another shot at it. He came back like the ones that won it. He's going to run a big race."
