The field for Saturday’s GIII Peter Pan S. at Aqueduct has been reduced from eight to six, with the connections of both ‘TDN Rising Star’ Tuscan Gold (Medaglia d’Oro) and Lonesome Boy (Nationhood) opting for other age-restricted spots. Daily Racing Form‘s David Grening was first to report the news.

William Lawrence, Walmac Farm and Stonestreet Stables’ Tuscan Gold is being rerouted for next Saturday’s GI Preakness S., trainer Chad Brown confirmed to the Form. The $600,000 Keeneland September yearling was fourth to stablemate and recent GI Kentucky Derby runner-up Sierra Leone (Gun Runner) on debut before romping to ‘Rising Star’ honors when trying two turns for the first time at Gulfstream Jan. 31. He was most recently third to Sierra Leone and Derby fourth Catching Freedom (Constitution) in the GII Louisiana Derby Mar. 23.

Lonesome Boy will pass on the Peter Pan in favor of a much softer landing in Saturday’s Long Branch S. on opening day at Monmouth Park. Victorious in the City of Brotherly Love S. at Parx Mar. 5, the Washington-bred was part of the early pace in the Apr. 6 GII Wood Memorial S. before weakening in the final furlong to be fourth, some 7 1/2 lengths behind Resilience (Into Mischief).

The Wine Steward (Vino Rosso) figures to go favored in the Peter Pan on the back of a comebacking second to Encino (Nyquist) in the GIII Stonestreet Lexington S. at Keeneland Apr. 13.
