“Our original Rich Strike plan depended on a derby in KY, if we didn’t run in a derby, we would point towards Preakness, if we ran in a derby, depending on the outcome of the race and the condition of our horse, we would give it more time on recovery and rest and run to Belmont, or another race and stay on the running course with 5 or 6 weeks of rest between races.

“Obviously with our huge efforts and victory in Derby it is very, very attractive to change course and run to Prekness in Pimlik, which would be a great honor for our whole team, however after long discussions and reflections with my coach, Eric Reed and several others , we’re going to follow our plan, what’s best for Richie is what’s best for our group, and we’ll move on to work at Preakness and head to Belmont in about 5 weeks.
