Undefeated Hutcheson S. (G2) romper FLASHPOINT (Pomeroy) motored five-eighths in a bullet :59 4/5 Friday at Gulfstream Park, best of 14 works at the distance on the fast track.
Trainer Rick Dutrow expects the up-and-coming gray to contest the April 3 Swale S. (G2), held over the same seven-furlong trip as the Hutcheson, but has not completely ruled out a tilt at the 1 1/8-mile Florida Derby (G1) on the same day.
"He's most likely going to run in the Swale, with the Florida Derby as a backup," Dutrow said. "It looks like the Florida Derby will be really tough, so we'll point him to the Swale.
"If things are any different on the day of entries, we could change our plans, but we want to do what's best for everyone."
Dutrow added that Flashpoint is still under consideration for the Kentucky Derby.
"It's possible if he had the (graded) earnings. It depends on a lot of things. We're not ruling anything out."
Flashpoint has also been nominated to the Wood Memorial S. (G1) and Bay Shore S. (G3), both on April 9 at Aqueduct.
A 6 1/4-length debut winner at Aqueduct on January 15, he rolled to a 7 1/4-length triumph in the February 26 Hutcheson.
"We never expected to see what he's done in his two races the way he trained in the morning," Dutrow said of the laid-back colt.
