‘TDN Rising Star’ Timberlake (Into Mischief), fourth as the favorite in last Saturday’s GI Arkansas Derby, will not be pointed to the GI Kentucky Derby, according to a report in Daily Racing Form.

The GI Champagne S. winner and GII Rebel S. winner is currently ranked fifth with 81 points for the Kentucky Derby.

“Based on the performance over the weekend, we are not going to run in the Kentucky Derby,” trainer Brad Cox told DRF. “We are thinking about cutting him back in distance.”

Cox added, “He came out of it in good order, very sound, and ships back to Churchill Downs today. We still feel it’s in his best interest not to try a mile and a quarter in four and a half weeks.”
