Sunday morning's work tab at Churchill Downs featured a trio of trainer Brad Cox's GI Kentucky Derby runners who recorded their first breezes since running on the first Saturday in May.

At 5:30 a.m., third-place finisher Angel of Empire (Classic Empire) recorded a half-mile move in :49. The colt, owned by Albaugh Family Stables, is possible to run in the GI Belmont S. June 10.

Shortly after, Verifying (Justify), who finished 16th in the Derby, worked a half-mile in :49.60.

At 7:45 a.m., Gary and Mary West's Hit Show (Candy Ride {Arg}), fifth in the Derby, breezed a half-mile in :49.40.

Hit Show and Verifying's next starts have yet to be determined.

LNJ Foxwoods and Clearsky Farms' Botanical (Medaglia d'Oro), the 13th-place finisher in the GI Longines Kentucky Oaks, worked an easy half-mile in :50.
