Michael Tabor's son of Matty G was a late scratch from the Derby Trial Stakes (gr. III) the week before the Derby at Churchill due to a wet track. Biancone said the colt will likely be kept in sprints."He has so much speed he may stay at short," said Biancone. "I don't see any horse that can go as fast as him at six or seven furlongs."
Biancone said the Amsterdam (gr. II) and King's Bishop (gr. I) at Saratoga are likely targets for Mayakovsky, with the ultimate goal being the Breeders' Cup Sprint (gr. I).
