Mylute is a Midnight Lute and Stage Stop colt. His place in the Louisiana Derby (G2) helped him garner enough points for a run in the Kentucky Derby. Jockey Shaun Bridgmohan rode Mylute in the Louisiana Derby and was also aboard him for a 7th place finish in the Risen Star (G2). His connections have deciced to make a change for the Kentucky Derby, giving the mount to Rosie Napravnik.

"Rosie was aboard Mylute for his latest victory, and we feel fortunate to have her back," owners Goldmark Farms LLC and Whisper Hill Farm LLC said in a statement. "We'd also like to give special thanks to Shaun Bridgmohan, as well as all of the other riders who have ridden Mylute for their help in getting him to this point in his career."

Beaten by less than a length in the Louisiana Derby, the switch back to Napravnik is likely a positive one for this horse. We've got an eye on him for the short list.
