Reincarnate continued his preparations for the Kentucky Derby when working five furlongs in company on Saturday at Santa Anita for trainer Tim Yakteen.
Hitting the main track right after the 6:30 a.m. renovation break, Reincarnate completed the work in 1:01.0. It was his second work since a third-place finish in the Grade I Arkansas Derby at Oaklawn Park on April 1.
“He worked great. Looked really good this morning,” Yakteen said.

Reincarnate won the GIII Sham on Jan. 8 at Santa Anita and was third in the GIII Rebel at Oaklawn Park prior to the Arkansas Derby. He will be ridden in the Kentucky Derby by John Velaquez, who was aboard for both the Rebel and Arkansas Derby.
Set to join Reincarnate in the Kentucky Derby starting gate May 6 at Churchill Downs is stablemate Practical Move, winner of the GI Santa Anita Derby here April 8. Practical Move worked on Friday, drilling four furlongs in 47.00 seconds while in company with Kangaroo Court. Yakteen reported Saturday morning Practical Move and Kangaroo Court, along with multiple stakes winner Johannes who also worked Friday, were all in good order Saturday and on track to run at Churchill Downs.
“Everyone was good this morning. Fingers crossed,” Yakteen said.
Johannes, winner of the Baffle and Pasadena Stakes on turf in his two most recent starts, is set to run in the GII American Turf for 3-year-olds on the Kentucky Derby undercard. Kangaroo Court is scheduled to run in the GII Pat Day Mile at Churchill Downs on the same day. He will be joined in the Pat Day Mile by stablemate Fort Bragg, who will cut back in distance following a fifth-place finish in the GI Florida Derby on April 1. Fort Bragg also worked on Saturday when drilling five furlongs in 59.40 seconds. It was the fourth fastest of 43 works at the distance.
Reincarnate, Practical Move, Kangaroo Court and Johannes will all work back on Friday at Santa Anita, Yakteen said. They are scheduled to ship to Churchill Downs the following day.
