March 9 NOTE: Trainer Walsh told TDN's Christina Bossinakis, "Since we gave him the break,he's put on good weight. Last year, he was a big frame of a horse. He put on the weight and the muscle that we thought he might, and really filled out. He's the horse that we anticipated he'd turn into last year. He's back to his old self again. He's doing great. He's moving great. He looks fantastic. He loves to train,he's always loved to train. We're seeing everything you'd want to see from him since he got back. I couldn't be happier. I'veseen nothing negative from the horse whatsoever. Since he came back to us, we'd done a bunch of galloping. We picked up the end of his gallops, three eighths, halves, five eighths the last couple of weeks just to build them into the (first) work. If everything went perfectly and we thought he was doing as well as he possibly could do, then we'd probably take in one of the Derby trials, maybe a month out. Roughly a monthout, but things would have to really go well because it would be off of a layoff to [try and] take in any of the Derby trials againsthorses that have had two, three runs this year. To take them on off the bench would be a huge ask for any horse. It's all verywell, but the last thing we want to do is do anything wrong bythe horse just to make the Derby. If he tells us that he can do it and he can make it, then well and good. If he can't, then as much as we'd love to go to the Derby, then we're not going to."
