Castaway was the impressive winner of the Grade 3 Southwest and now takes on seven rivals in Sundays Grade 3, $800,000 Sunland Derby. He should figure prominently in the outcome of this race. Ender Knievel last out scored a near 8-length maiden win on Feb. 5 in a $51,500 maiden race at Gulfstream Park at one mile and should be able to get the distance. Daddy Nose Best is coming off a nose win in the Grade 3 El Camino Real Derby at Golden State Fields over the Tapeta synthetic surface. The improving colt earned an impressive 92 Beyer speed figure. Isnt He Clever is the local favorite following two commanding stakes victories at Sunland Park Racetrack and Casino. He won both the $104,200 Riley Allison Futurity and the $150,000 Borderland Derby in stakes record time. Tequila Factor, Justandoldsong, and Stirred Up round out the field.
