Rosie Napravnik Eyes the Derby Winners Circle Aboard Mylute

Rosie intends to ride into the history books aboard MYLUTE
MYLUTE – GoldMark Farm and Whisper Hill Farm’s MYLUTE “had his regular day” with a jog and a gallop at 5:45 a.m. under regular exercise rider Maurice Sanchez, according to assistant trainer (and the exercise rider’s wife), Kathy Sanchez.
 
Some say he is hasn't raced enough, but MYLUTE has two starts in 2013 and has been trained to peak in his third start off the layoff -- he has never raced on an off track but his pedigree bolsters any weak confidence there.  His sire, MIDNIGHT LUTE, dominated the 2007 Breeders’ Cup Sprint (GI) over a sloppy track at Monmouth Park, winning by 4 ¾ lengths.      
 
“Skipping the Lecomte and waiting for the Risen Star, having that break, that was all to set us up for his best effort here on the first Saturday in May,” said Todd Quast, general manager of co-owner GoldMark Farm.
 
Why I like this horse:  Rosie Napravnik has a chance to make history for women, and the past six Kentucky Derby winners all came into the race with two starts in that calendar year.
