    IF AT FIRST YOU DON’T SUCCEED... It=s been over a half-century since Tim Tam parlayed a win in the Derby Trial into victory in the Run for the Roses a week further down the road. In 2005, Don=t Get Mad (Stephen Got Even) came with a furious finish

    to take the Trial before acquitting himself very well on seven days= rest, finishing 3 1/2 lengths behind the victorious Giacomo (Holy Bull) in the Run for the Roses. The connections of at least two of today=s partici- pants are definitely in it to win it, with the goal of cementing a

    spot in the Kentucky Derby gate if they want it. J “TDN Rising Star” J Eightyfiveinafifty (Forest Camp) stretches back out to Churchill=s one-turn mile off a handy success in the GIII Bay Shore S. on the Wood Memorial undercard Apr. 3, and hopes to handle this route of ground better than his first try. That came in the Whirlaway S. in New York Feb. 6, when he blew the turn and dumped Jorge Chavez and jumped the outside rail. Pleasant Prince (Indy King) was fourth to Derby favorite Eskendereya (Giant=s Causeway) in the GII Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth S. Feb. 20, but came back four weeks later to miss by a nose in the GI Florida Derby. With an eye on some extra graded-stakes earnings, he came back in the GI Toyota Blue Grass S. Apr. 10, but was no better than seventh. He makes his third start in the span of 35 days this afternoon.

    THREE CHEERS FOR MUSKETIER Runner-up when a 27-1 chance in last year=s GII Fifth Third Elkhorn S. at bucolic Keeneland Race Course, Musketier (Ger) (Acatenango {Ger}) sat a midpack trip beneath John Velazquez, came out and around rivals in upper stretch and pulled clear for a 1 3/4-length vic- tory. The win gave trainer Roger Attfield a sweep of the turf marathon events to close the meeting annually in Lexington. Subesquently ninth over an insufficient nine panels in Pimlico=s GII Dixie S. May 16, he stretched back out to 12 panels to annex the GIII Singspiel S. at his Woodbine base June 21. Employing pacesetting tactics in the GI Man O=War S. at Belmont July 11, he held dourly for second behind Gio Ponti (Tale of the Cat), but faltered to ninth after attending a brisk pace in the GI Sword Dancer Invitational S. at Saratoga Aug. 15. He made just one additional appearance in 2009, a last-of-six effort in the GI Joe Hirsch Turf Clas- sic Invitational S. Oct. 3. A touch slow into stride, Musketier was guided over to the inside to save some ground from centerfield as Timeless Fashion (Sky Clas- sic) tried to slow things down up front. He advanced into sixth position on the turn and responded when asked to win handily. Brass Hat (Prized) rallied from the tail of the field to gain the place, while longshot Blush- ing Bear (Rahy) was a good third. Expansion (Maria=s Mon) was perhaps the unluckiest participant in yester- day=s event, as he was blocked for a run at a crucial stage and ran on late into fourth. Chart p4

    Undefeated in three turf starts and the owner of a four-race winning streak overall, Red Sun ships up from Southern California to try graded company for the first time. And it seems he has found a cozy spot. The bay defeated fellow Cal-breds by four lengths going a mile at Hollywood Dec. 18, followed up with a success down the hill at Santa Anita Jan. 30 and took an off- turf allowance in Arcadia Mar. 7. Bold Chieftain looks to plug a gaping hole in an impressive resume with a first graded-stakes badge of his own. Winner of over $1.4 million in a 35-race career, the seven-year-old defeated Monterey Jazz and Sir Al in a Tapeta prep for this event Apr. 2.

    Paco Boy registered his first score at this trip when garnering last year=s renewal, and the dual Group 1 winner makes his seasonal return coming back off a second to Rip Van Winkle (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) in July=s G1 Sussex S. at Goodwood. However, trainer Richard Hannon is at pains to point out that the G1 Queen Anne S. winner will not be risked on unsuitably fast going, and may be scratched. AThe intention is to run as the race is set-up for Paco Boy and will put him spot on for the [May 15 G1] Lockinge S. at Newbury next month,@ Hannon said. ALast year we had to carry a six-pound penalty for our [G1] Prix de la Foret success the previous autumn, but this time he gets in with no penalty, so it is very tempting. I am told that they have watered the course twice this week, but they are talk- ing about temperatures reaching 20 degrees [Celsius] on Saturday, so it will dry out quickly, and there is no way that I will mess up our season before we have [email protected] Chief among his intended rivals is Juddmonte Farms= Confront, who backed up a pair of listed suc- cesses with victory in October=s G3 Joel S. at Newmarket. He finished a close-up sixth in December=s G1 Hong Kong Mile at Sha Tin next time, and returns to European action coming off a troubled effort in last month=s G1 Dubai Duty Free at Meydan.
