Went the Day Well, who galloped a mile and a half at Fair Hills Training Center on Tuesday, will also arrive Wednesday. He was scheduled to arrive Tuesday, but trainer Graham Motion decided to postpone the trip because of the rain.
Creative Cause, the fifth-place finisher at the Derby, and shooter Cozzetti are also set to arrive in Baltimore on Wednesday. Dale Romans, whose Shackleford out-lasted Animal Kingdom in last year's Preakness, will saddle Cozzetti; his third-place Derby finisher Dullahan withdrew from consideration.
Female Jockey Challenge returns to Friday card
Friday's 13-race card at Pimlico, which features the Black-Eyed Susan and Pimlico Special, will bring back the Female Jockey Challenge for a second year.
Eight of racing's best female jockeys will earn points for placing in the top four in the second, third, fifth and seventh races of the day.
The challenge will feature Rosie Napravnik, the former Hereford student who leads female jockeys in wins and purse money this year, and Emma-Jayne Wilson, who won the challenge in 2011.
"This is the best female jockey challenge, not only that I've ever been in, but probably one of the best female jockey challenges there's ever been," said Napravnik, who became the first woman ever to win the Kentucky Oaks. "It's fun to get together with the girls that really have been successful, and it's great to be included in what they call the elite riders in the country."
In addition to the challenge, the Lady Legends for the Cure III race will return for its third year.
Mary Wiley-Wagner, a breast cancer survivor, won the race by six and a half lengths riding Mass Destruction a year ago just 18 months after finishing her final chemotherapy treatment.
Friday will be the third "People's Pink Party," a joint effort between Pimlico and Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the world's largest breast cancer organization.
Seventy five percent of the profits will go to the Komen Maryland affiliate for use in community outreach programs in Maryland, while the remaining quarter will be donated to breast cancer research.
