Gennadi Dorochenko, trainer of Louisiana Derby (gr. II) longshot winner Hero of Order, will try for another upset with Russian Greek in the April 14 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (gr. I).
Favored Russian Greek rallied from last on the far turn to register a one-length victory in the $100,520 California Derby at Golden Gate Fields Jan. 14.
Russian Greek overcame a stumbling start to capture the $75,260 Gold Rush Stakes with a late surge by a neck in a 7-1 surprise at Golden Gate Fields Dec. 10.
A determined Skipshot collared the tiring Sidney's Candy just before the wire to upset the 1-5 favorite by a frantic head in the $196,000 Swaps Stakes (gr. II) at Hollywood Park July 17.
