Andromeda's Hero Works Toward Arkansas Derby

Robert LaPenta's Andromeda's Hero, prepping for a possible start in the April 16 Arkansas Derby (gr. II) at Oaklawn Park, worked five furlongs at Keeneland Friday morning.

Working in company with stablemate Pinpoint, the Nick Zito-trainess broke off easily from the pole with Pinpoint five lengths in front of Andromeda's Hero. Breezing easily around the turn, Andromeda's Hero picked it up down the lane to out finish Pinpoint by three lengths in 1:00 3/5.

Pinpoint was clocked in 1:01 2/5.
