In MHO, the connections had to scratch Max 3 days before the BC Boys. The (this type of surgery for most horses) chip surgery calls for 60 days off R+R. Three works now. It would seem to me they would project his success to the Kentucky Derby with all it can bring to them, top 3 yr old award, breeding enhanced bucks. Prestige as they became tarnished with trainer not long ago. And promises of significant, substantial success if not too late to be in 20 Derby gate.

I think also if the colt was not ready for Derby they would pass on the two jewels left. That is, not run against seasoned Derby runners. And other comers.

Go Saratoga route instead..fresh.

Dogs has not bet a N America race this yr..and Tampa B Derby...Hey..good idea so far..They got out in 1:12...my eye-balled surface had it the race was about who could run and stay on it. The KY Derby for 6 furlong openers will run 2 sec + faster.

Haven't seen too many comments on Authentic, who looked just that. He didn't show the extreme greenness he did last time, and won easily in a hand ride. Could be the best of Baffert's deep crop. I'm waiting to see one he has named, Seize the Day, that's yet to debut. Obviously by Carpe Diem, I've seen this horse work in company a few times, and he always seems to dominate his company. Should debut soon.

Authentic looked really professional yesterday.When Honor A.P. came near him he just glided away.Last I checked,he had been bet down to 5-1 in the most recent KD future pool

I'm looking forward to see Dreams Untold race again. His last race was probably the most impressive 5th place finish I can remember. He's a next out bet at a price. I especially like that he is by Smarty Jones with the same connections.

Do you know if Cafe Pharoah is listed as an individual entry on the Future Book?

Max worked 5fl on March 8. Still looks possible he has a path to garner a spot to run for the red floral arrangement Derby provided (d) 

Max is 21st on Derby point list, and 6th money one..
