Borel Gets Acquainted With Revolutionary

Revolutionary breezed four furlongs in :48.80 and recorded fractions of :12.60, :24.80 and :37 and galloped out five furlongs in 1:01.20 and six furlongs in 1:15.20 with Calvin Borel in the irons on Sunday at Churchill Downs.

Borel will be aboard Revolutionary on the First Saturday in May.

“We wanted to get Calvin familiar with him because it’s the first time he’s been on him,” trainer Todd Pletcher told Churchill Downs Publicity. “We were looking for a little less from him. He went a good half and finished up well. I love the way he galloped out and Calvin was really happy with him. So, we accomplished what we wanted to do with him.”

“He did everything right and worked really well,” Borel said. “I think this colt has the potential (to win the Derby). He’s a nice horse and he’s been through everything you want a Derby horse to go through.”

WinStar Farm LLC’s Revolutionary is scheduled to work at Churchill Downs next Sunday.
