VA-BRED FREE ENTRY HEADED FOR WEEKEND STAKE(S)?

UPDATE: Free Entry was entered in the Tampa Bay Derby.  Pluck, the BC Juvenile Turf winner, is also entered at Tampa Bay Downs on Saturday in a $30,000 allowance on the turf-his first start since the Breeder’s Cup.

Virginia-bred Free Entry (Tale Of The Cat – Preachtothechoir by Pulpit. Bred by Corner Farm & Raul Lottero) will likely be entered Wednesday in both the one-mile Timely Writer S. at Gulfstream and the GII Tampa Bay Derby at Tampa Bay Downs. Both races are Saturday.

“I’ll enter in both and give the owners the option, although right now I’m leaning towards going to Tampa, because of the graded money,” trainer Chad Brown told Daily Racing Form a day after Free Entry tuned up 
Sunday at Palm Meadows with a five-furlong move in 1:01.30. The work was seventh fastest of 23 at the distance. 
Free Entry, fourth behind Uncle Mo in his debut at Saratoga last August, returned with a maiden-breaking score over six furlongs at Gulfstream Jan. 23 and stretched out to a mile for a 1 3/4-length win at the Hallendale track in February.
