Nakatani To Be Reunited With Bolt D’Oro, Possibly In Preakness

Jockey Corey Nakatani will be reunited with Bolt d’Oro in the Preakness, should the colt run. Nakatani rode the son of Medaglia d’Oro in his first four races, winning three, before being replaced by Javier Castellano in the San Felipe Stakes and the Santa Anita Derby, and then Victor Espinoza in the Run for the Roses.

“My dad still believes in the horse,” said Nakatani’s son and agent, Matt. “We’re excited to be back.”

Trainer Mick Ruis has laid several options on the table for Bolt d’Oro’s next start, but the Preakness gets top priority pending a dry track. Other choices include the Penn Mile or the Woody Stephens.
