"Of course I want to run in the Kentucky Derby, but I have to think about the horse first. To run in the Derby just to run is not the thing to do," trainer Rodolphe Brisset told BloodHorse.com. "We have a horse who could definitely win a Grade 1 [race] down the line, but that three-week time frame is just too short. He's going to need a bit more time. So he's going to be pointed to the Preakness."
