Johnny V. has a major decision that could impact much of the next few weeks: Orb or Verrazano. If he chooses Orb, would Pletcher turn to Napravnik if she is without an entry. If Borel doesn't have a mount, would he be a consideration for the Derby?

And then comes this bit of news:

MANHASSET, N.Y. - Hall of Fame jockey John Velazquez fractured a rib on his right side and chipped a bone in his right wrist as a result of being involved in a spill Sunday at Aqueduct.

While Velazquez will not be able to ride Horse of the Year Wise Dan in his seasonal debut in Friday’s Maker’s 46 Mile at Keeneland, Velazquez said he hopes to be back in time to ride the Kentucky Derby.
