Santa Anita Derby winner Goldencents jogged over Santa Anita's fast main track Saturday morning.
"He had an easy day today," trainer Doug O'Neill said. "He'll go back to galloping tomorrow. He's doing super."
Goldencents will try to give O'Neill back-to-back Derby wins. At this time last year, O'Neill sent out I'll Have Another to Derby glory in a whirlwind Triple Crown chase, that was ended by injury on the eve of the Belmont Stakes.
Both colts have been ridden by jockeys with similar profiles, who emerged from racing's doldrums to its pinnacle.
