Given the colt's Chicago connections, it's not surprising Bob Baffert would send Midnight Hawk to the April 19 Illinois Derby at Hawthorne. As for his plans from there on out, you'll have to read between the lines.
Let's Go Stable's undefeated Divine Oath will make his stakes debut April 19 in the $200,000 Coolmore Lexington (gr. III) at Keeneland after failing to draw in to the Toyota Blue Grass (gr. I).
Escaping Oaklawn Park, stakes-winning Tanzanite Cat faces a pair of tough entrants from both Bob Baffert and Todd Pletcher as part of a deep field for the $800,000 Sunland Derby (gr. III) March 23 in New Mexico.
