Santa Anita Derby winner Goldencents was put through his final workout on Thursday morning at Santa Anita in preparation for a start in the Kentucky Derby on May 4.

Goldencents was clocked in 1 minute 16.20 seconds for the breeze under exercise rider Jonny Garcia, with trainer Doug O'Neill and jockey Kevin Krigger watching from the Arcadia track's grandstand.

"I thought he went great," O'Neill said. "My biggest focus was to have him finish up stronger than he started off, and he did just that."

Goldencents, a 3-year-old son of Into Mischief, will be trying to give O'Neill his second consecutive Kentucky Derby winner. He won last year with I'll Have Another.

Goldencents is scheduled to be flown to Louisville on Saturday morning.
