Brown had previously stated that he was considering skipping the first leg of the Triple Crown. Even though the son of Gun Runner ranked 15th on the Kentucky Derby leader-board.

Secondly, “We weren’t likely to come (to the Derby with him). However, we wanted to leave our options open. Also, just see if there were any major defectors from the race that could change maybe the pace of the race,” Brown said. “As long as the field is staying the way it is, we’re going to stick with our original plan. He’s a lightly raced horse who hadn’t had any real experience with challenging trips or anything like that. To throw him into deep water with a 20-horse field, at this point in time with him, I don’t think it’s the right thing. We’re excited about his chances in the Preakness.”

“We’re looking down the road with him. Also, the Preakness on six weeks rest looks like it will set it up for him just fine,” Brown said. “If he takes another step forward. He’s going to be very competitive in that race.”
