Known Agenda Works For Florida Derby

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – St. Elias Stable’s Known Agenda breezed 5 furlongs in 1:02.52 Saturday morning at Palm Beach Downs, tuning up for next Saturday’s $750,000 Curlin Florida Derby (G1) presented by Hill ‘n’ Dale at Xalapa.

“I thought he went great. The first 1/8 (of a mile) was a little slow. He went off in like 14 (seconds) and went the last 1/2 in 48 and 1. He looked good and seemed happy,” trainer Todd Pletcher said. “I’ve liked the way he’s been training since his last race.”

Known Agenda is coming off a sharp 11-length optional claiming allowance victory February 26 at Gulfstream Park at the 1 1/8-mile distance of the Florida Derby.

After getting away last and finishing fifth in the February 6 Sam F. Davis (G3) at Tampa Bay Downs, the son of Curlin was equipped with blinkers for the first time for his last start.

Known Agenda holds the distinction of owning a decision over likely Florida Derby favorite Greatest Honour, whom he defeated by a head while graduating in a 1 1/8-mile maiden special weight race November 8 at Aqueduct.

Irad Ortiz Jr. has the mount.
