Tami Bobo's Simplification (Not This Time) breezed five-furlongs in 1:01.83 Friday morning at Gulfstream Park in preparation for a scheduled start in the May 7 GI Kentucky Derby. It was the GII Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth S. winner's first work since finishing third in the GI Curlin Florida Derby Apr. 2.

Junior Alvarado was aboard for the breeze, subbing for jockey Jose Ortiz.

“He galloped out six furlongs in 1:15.3, the seven furlongs in 1:27 and the mile in 1:40,” trainer Antonio Sano said. “Excellent. I'm so happy with my horse. He went very easy and came back well.”

Simplification is scheduled to work the next two Fridays at Gulfstream before shipping to Churchill Downs April 29.
