Javier Castellano saw a couple horses in front of him and thought about steering Constitution to the outside in an effort to pass everyone.
Spot rallied from fifth place to beat favorite No Nay Never by 2½ lengths Saturday in the Grade 2 Swale Stakes for 3-year-olds at Gulfstream Park.
Undefeated Shared Belief and Breeders' Cup Juvenile runner-up Havana lead the list of 413 early nominees for the Triple Crown series for 3-year-olds.

Orb is looking to bounce back after his fourth-place finish in the Preakness, following his 2½ -length win in the Derby. Oxbow is out to show his wire-to-wire Preakness win was not a fluke.
Orb is the 3-1 favorite and drew the No. 5 post for trainer Shug McGaughey. Preakness winner Oxbow is 5-1 after drawing the No. 7 post for trainer D. Wayne Lukas.
Orb has been made the early 7-2 favorite for the Kentucky Derby, with undefeated Verrazano the second choice in a full field of 20 horses.

Because of the mile-and-a-half distance and because it will be his colt's third race in five weeks, trainer Steve Asmussen doesn't know how Curlin will finish in today's Belmont Stakes.
"We're not quite sure if both are going to run, but the plane is headed to Kentucky," Pletcher said.
"We've had good fortune there, good luck," Pletcher said. "It's always been a favorite track of mine since I was a teenager. I've got a lot of fond memories of Oaklawn."
