Coming up: There is no live racing on Easter Sunday, but next week features a loaded lineup of stakes leading up to the Grade I Toyota Blue Grass Stakes on April 14. The Grade I Vinery Madison for older fillies and mares going 7 furlongs headlines Thursday's card. Friday's Grade I Maker's 46 Mile is expected to feature a showdown between defending race winner Get Stormy and Grade I winner Turallure.
■ Three probable candidates for Saturday's Grade I, $750,000 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes put in 5-furlong works over the main track Saturday morning. Adirondack King covered the distance in :59.80; Team Valor International's Howe Great was clocked in 1:01.60 and Ken and Sarah Ramsey's Politicallycorrect worked in :59 (one of three bullet works at the distance).
■ Graded stakes winner Successful Dan came out of his victory in Friday's allowance race in good order and could be pointed next to the Grade II Alysheba Stakes at Churchill Downs on May 4. Successful Dan was making his first start since finishing third via disqualification in the 2010 Grade I Clark Handicap. "He ate up good last night and his legs are cold this morning," trainer Charlie Lopresti said. "He is a different horse than any horse I have ever had. He was not totally cranked up yesterday, but I had him as good as I could coming off the layoff (because of a suspensory injury)."
