Fountain of Youth S. (G2) hero ESKENDEREYA (Giant's Causeway) worked an easy five furlongs in 1:02 2/5 on Sunday morning over Palm Meadows's fast dirt as he is kept on edge for next Saturday's $750,000 Florida Derby (G1) at Gulfstream Park, leading a team of a dozen stakes runners on the work tab from trainer Todd Pletcher's arsenal of talent this winter.
Multiple Grade 2 winner BUDDY'S SAINT (Saint Liam) is off the Kentucky Derby (G1) trail after an ankle chip was discovered following a workout at Gulfstream Park on Sunday, trainer Bruce Levine told The Blood-Horse.
"He really didn't work that well this morning, and when he came back he started walking a little bit off and it got progressively worse," Levine said. "We X-rayed him and found the chip in his ankle."
