LOUISVILLE, KY. (AP) - Possible Kentucky Derby favorite I Want Revenge has hit the track at Churchill Downs in one of his final major workouts before next week’s Run for the Roses.

The 3-year-old colt covered five furlongs Tuesday in 1:01 3-5 seconds with 19-year-old jockey Joe Talamo aboard. Trainer Jeff Mullins said he was pleased with the work on a track still a little muddy from heavy rain the day before.

Pioneerof the Nile, trained by newly minted Hall of Famer Bob Baffert, covered the same distance in 1:00 4-5. Baffert said he plans to work the Santa Anita Derby winner at least one more time before the Derby on May 2.

Chocolate Candy, piloted by Mike Smith, breezed a mile in 1:42.
