Trainer Neil Drysdale said the 3-year-old son of Deputy Minister and the champion racemare Hollywood Wildcat will likely make his next start in the Laz Barrera Handicap (gr. III) at Hollywood Park on May 26.
"He's been doing very well since he got back from Kentucky," Drysdale said. "He got bumped around pretty hard (in the Lexington) about 10 times, but has recovered. He's right on target for the (Laz Barrera)."
Ministers Wild Cat won the Golden State Mile and finished second in the El Camino Real Derby (gr. III) before finishing fifth as the 2-1 favorite in the Lexington. He's earned $122,960 from two wins and two seconds in five career starts.
Drysdale also said that Jim Murray Memorial Handicap hero Storming Home will likely start next in either the Manhattan Handicap (gr. IT) at Belmont Park on June 7 or the Charles Whittingham Memorial Handicap (gr. IT) at Hollywood Park June 14.
"It all depends on the weights," Drysdale said.
Storming Home, a winner of last year's Champion Stakes (gr. I) at Newmarket, took home top honors in the Murray on Saturday in his first North American start. The Sheikh Maktoum al Maktoum colorbearer brought his bankroll to $1,125,588 with six wins from 20 career starts.
