Trainer Peter Miller ruled GET HER NUMBER out of the Kentucky Derby after a five-furlong workout in 1:02.2 at San Luis Rey Downs Saturday morning. This allows KEEPMEINMIND to fill the spot in the field of 20 for Derby Day, next Saturday, May 2nd.
GET HER NUMBER was number 19 on the Derby Leaderboard. He earned his spot with a win in the American Pharoah (G1) at Santa Anita last year and a fourth-place finish in the Arkansas Derby (G1) at Oaklawn Park.
KEEPMEINMIND worked four furlongs at Churchill Downs in 46.2 for trainer Robert Diodoro. He has made two starts this year including a sixth place finish in the Rebel (G2) at Oaklawn Park and fifth in the Blue Grass (G2). He also earned points on the Road to the Kentucky Derby as a two year old winning the Kentucky Jockey Club (G2) and hitting the board in the Breedres' Futurity (G1) and Breeders' Cup Juvenile.
If any additional horses drop out of the race, BROOKLYN STRONG is next in line.
