The Word On Charge It

April 30: Stablemates Charge It and Pioneer of Medina had walk days Sunday at Barn 35 following their final prep workouts. He posted 12.20, 23.60, 35.80, 47.40/59.60, 112.40 in his final workout Saturday while running inside his stablemate.

May 3: Trainer Todd Pletcher is happy with Charge It’s post position.

Dave Bontempo betting analysis

Charge It is lightly raced and an exciting colt. In his first race, Charge It lost a thrilling stretch duel and followed that up with a victory. In this Florida Derby, bettors backed the horse because he’s trained by Todd Pletcher, who has six Florida Derby victories — the most ever. Charge It ran hard and captured second just before the wire. That surge may be his major story if he runs well in the Kentucky Derby.
