A rescheduled Derby puts ‘TDN Rising Star’ Mr. Monomoy back in play. He was the stylish, front-running victor of the faster division of the GII Risen Star S. back in February, but on Mar. 1 he was declared off of the Derby trail when he came out of a gallop with heat in an ankle. At the time, trainer Brad Cox told TDN, “We took some X-rays and found that there was some roughening in the P1 (first phalanx) area. He’ll need 60 days off and is on his way to WinStar to recuperate.” This $60,000 KEENOV weanling and €180,000 ARQMAY breeze-up buy) is a half-brother to the Cox-trained 2018 champion filly Monomoy Girl (Tapizar).
