The 3-year-old son of Blofeld was timed in 59.60 seconds before galloping out six furlongs in 1:13, said trainer Jeff Engler.

“He’s ready to go,” Engler said “I’m waiting to hear back from Brookledge. I think they said Tuesday or Wednesday. If it’s Wednesday, it will obviously be early.”

Engler said Joe Bravo, who has ridden 5659 winners while amassing total purse winnings of more than $200 million, has the mount aboard Mugatu.

Bravo, who has ridden five Preakness starters, was aboard Mugatu for a 3 ½-length maiden special weight score on Tapeta last November at Gulfstream, the only time he’s ridden the Engler trainee.
