Kentucky Derby Baffert horses get in final workouts
2014-04-29

I was more worried about the lightning, he said. It was pretty hairy out there.

But after the weather subsided, Baffert sent both to the track and liked what he saw.

Oaks hopeful Ria Antonia worked four furlongs in 47.40 seconds, the fastest of 13 workouts at the distance Monday.

Working alongside barnmate Drill, Derby hopeful Hoppertunity covered four furlongs in 48 seconds. The 5-year-old Drill finished in 48.40 seconds.

Drill is always the aggressor and has a lot of horse, and (Hoppertunity) just went along there steady, Baffert said. (Jockey Martin Garcia) said he was having a hard time pulling him up there at the end. He looks good, and Im really happy the work got in.

Baffert said his other Derby hopeful, Chitu, was doing well after breezing six furlongs in 1:13.20 on Sunday. During that workout, Chitu lost a special-made shoe he was wearing on his right-front foot because of a fungus condition.

Baffert said Chitu will have a regular shoe on the foot for the Derby.

Its more of a cosmetic-looking thing on him, Baffert said. It was blown out of proportion. The foot is all patched up, so hes good.

Tapiture, the other Derby horse on Mondays tab, went out under the lights for a maintenance work that turned out anything but routine. The skies opened up as Tapiture readied, then breezed four furlongs in 0:50 with thunder crackling overhead.

Most all Derby works are in the books now other than a scheduled breeze for trainer Mike Maker's General a Rod on Tuesday morning. Wicked Strong and Uncle Sigh may also put in short works before Saturday's race.
