Godolphin's homebred Avery Island breezed five furlongs on Friday at Florida's Palm Meadows Training Center, earning an official time of 1:01.20 at the distance. According to drf.com, the sophomore son of Street Sense will make his next start in the G2 Louisiana Derby at the Fair Grounds.

“He worked very well and galloped-out strong,” trainer Kiaran McLaughlin said. “He just seems like he's gotten better with every work, from his 2-year-old season and now at 3. He's a big, strong colt with a long stride who is great mentally and just keeps improving all the time.”

Out of the A.P. Indy mare Kinda Spicy, Avery Island is the winner of both the G2 Nashua and G2 Withers Stakes, the latter his 2018 debut. The colt's overall record stands at three wins from five starts with earnings of $365,332.
