Rise Up to add blinkers next time

  • Rise Up's next start is to be determined (Coady Photography)

Paul and Andrena Van Doren's Delta Jackpot winner Rise Up worked with blinkers on when he posted a four-furlong move in :48 1/5 on Mardi Gras morning, and 10-time Fair Grounds trainer champion Tom Amoss advised Saturday afternoon that his colt will have blinkers on for his next start, which has yet to be determined.

The 101st running of the Grade 2 Louisiana Derby remains a possibility but not necessarily a probability for Rise Up's next start.

Also at Fair Grounds, trainer Dallas Stewart worked West Point Thoroughbreds' Louisiana Derby candidate Commanding Curve and Charles Fipke's Grade 2 New Orleans Handicap candidate Golden Soul in company going three-quarters on Friday to post breezes of 1:13 3/5 over a track rated good.

Seven-time Fair Grounds jockey champion Robby Albarado was aboard Commanding Curve and is expected to ride him once again in the Louisiana Derby.

Golden Soul finished second behind Orb in last spring's Kentucky Derby.
